They had evacuated the first floor of the building as a precaution after they were called there for a possible chlorine leak. 

There was a "potent smell" on the first floor, Duluth Public Information Officer Kate Van Daele said. 

Van Daele says it was unclear why multiple types of chemicals had been poured down the sink.
