Cary St. Gym reopens after chemical scare

RICHMOND, Va. -- Cary St. Gym, on the campus of VCU, reopened Thursday afternoon following a pool chemical scare.

"Police and Fire Departments are on scene at Cary St. Gym," the university said in a university-wide alert earlier Thursday. "[The] building [is] closed until further notice."

The Richmond Fire Department was called to evaluate the building after staff found a mixture of pool chemicals that could cause health issues, the university announced.
No injuries were reported.

In addition to the building closure, Cary Street -- between Harrison and Cherry Streets - was also closed.

The road has since reopened.

The Cary St. Gym is located at 101 S. Linden Street, the corner of Cary and Linden streets.
