MILLINGTON, Tenn. — A leaky valve connecting two ammonia tanks at Osmose, a wood-preservation plant on Fite Road, brought more than 20 Shelby County firefighters to the Millington-area plant after neighbors complained of breathing difficulties Thursday.
Shelby County Fire Department public information officer Brent Perkins said there were no injuries, and those who had noticed the ammonia odor at about 6:10 p.m. were monitored for blood pressure, heart rate and other vital signs. No one required treatment, Perkins said.
