Anhydrous ammonia leak north of Morris
A farming accident caused up to 600 gallons of anhydrous ammonia to be spilled in a field on the north edge of Morris Monday night, prompting authorities to evacuate a portion of the community.
According to Morris Police Chief Jim Beauregard, at about 10 p.m., a farmer reported that while he was applying anhydrous to a field just north of Morris a hose broke and the chemical spilled. The spill resulted in a plume of gas which was slowly traveling east.
