A combination of household cleaning chemicals and bleach was found to be the cause of a hazmat situation in Lawrence County, OH, this week, reported WSAZ-TV.  

Residents of a mobile home poured bleach and several other cleaning chemicals into a toilet over several days in an attempt to clean a clogged toilet. Firefighters believes the combination created a toxic fume, perhaps chlorine gas. Nine people exposed to the toxic fumes were treated at a local hospital, including two residents of the home and some firefighters and paramedics.
