A shelter in place order was issued Monday afternoon for parts of Edgewood, Kirkwood, Candler Park, and Lake Claire after a “major ammonia leak” was reported at a former refrigeration warehouse off LaFrance Street at Mayson Avenue. According to WSB-TV, workers in the former Schwan’s frozen food facility were removing 40,000 pounds of ammonia from the building when the leak occurred. Atlanta Fire Rescue got the leak under control and lifted the shelter in place after a few hours.
