CHANDLER, Ariz. (AP) -- Authorities say 26 workers were evacuated from a Honeywell plant in Chandler after an acid cloud formed from the mixing of unspecified chemicals.

No injuries were reported.

Chandler Fire Department officials say the workers were evacuated from the electronic chemical facility near Interstate 10 and the Loop 202 about 1:30 p.m. Wednesday.

They say the acid cloud formed in one room but spread to another.

Firefighters were able to contain it in the two rooms.

Authorities say the mixing of unknown chemicals caused the acid cloud to form.
