Sirens sounded and text messages were sent after an employee overreacted.
Union Pacific spokesman Mark Davis said the employee overreacted when they saw some kind of discharge coming from a tank car. However, it was discovered that the tank car was in a routine venting process.
Employees and residents are on high alert after a tank car filled with chlorine derailed just east of Bailey Yards last Monday.
