Twelve Airmen from the Homestead Air Reserve Base were taken to the hospital Sunday afternoon as precaution after possible exposure to Hydrazine, a highly toxic chemical, according to a spokesman for the base.
The Airmen were doing routine maintenance on an F-16 when they may have come in contact with the chemical, said Senior Airman Frank Casciotta.
No serious injuries were reported.
