TOLLESON, Ariz. (AP) - Fire crews say an ammonia leak now is under control at a food-handling facility in Tolleson, some 20 miles west of Phoenix.

Authorities say about 75 people were safely evacuated from the building Monday afternoon and there were no reported injuries.

Fire crews from Tolleson, Phoenix, Glendale, Peoria and Goodyear responded to the scene at Sysco Arizona.

Crews had to don hazmat suits to enter the facility.

There’s no immediate word on what caused the leak.
