Hamilton Hall, home of University of Nebraska-Lincoln's chemistry department, at City Campus on Tuesday, Oct. 15th, 2019, in Lincoln Nebraska.

University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s lab workers created a chemical flash fire in Hamilton Hall around noon on Sunday, Lincoln Fire and Rescue told Lincoln Journal Star.

LFR Captain Bob Watton told LJS a water leak caused a reaction with two flammable chemical compounds and started a flash fire. 

The fire left no injuries, Watton told LJS. However, the room has scorch marks and water damage, LJS reports.
