Fifteen people were hospitalized Thursday afternoon after a gas leak at the paper mill in Lessebo in the southern Swedish province of Småland Thursday.
One is being treated in the Intensive Care Unit at Växjö Hospital, but the injuries are not judged to be serious. Some of the others are to remain at the hospital overnight for observation.
The incident happened when sulphur dioxide was being piped from a truck into the factory, and the hose began to leak.
The local population were initially advised to remain indoors, and a local highway and roads into the community were closed, but that advisory has now been withdrawn.
