Sulfuric Acid Fire Injures Four, Forces Iowa Town to Evacuate

A fire containing sulfuric acid burning at an airport facility in northern Iowa has injured at least four people and forced the evacuation of a small town.

Residents of Northwood, Iowa, were asked to evacuate by Worth County Emergency Management, who called the fire at Northwood Municipal Airport a "dangerous situation."

The fire was burning at a fertilizer plant on the airport grounds, The Quad-City Times reported.

Mercy Medical Center in Mason City, about 20 miles from the fire, received four patients Thursday morning, a hospital spokesperson said. The patients all walked in seeking treatment on their own; the extent of their injuries was not made public.
