Pr. George's police station evacuated
The Prince George's County police District I station was evacuated Wednesday afternoon while authorities cleaned up a freon leak from a heating, ventilation and air conditioning unit, fire officials said.
About 2:15 p.m., an alarm sounded in a building that houses the station at 5000 Rhode Island Avenue in Hyattsville, and firefighters arrived to find that an HVAC unit had malfunctioned and released a small quantity of freon, authorities said. Police services have been temporarily relocated to another building in the county services complex while fire officials resolve the problem, authorities said.
Mark Brady, a spokesman for the Prince George's County Fire/EMS Department, said in a news release that it is "anticipated that this minor issue will be cleared up very quickly with ventilation of the building whereas the building can resume normal operations."
