MORRISVILLE, Vt. (AP) - Police say six people have been taken to the hospital following a chemical spill at a wood, gas and pellet stove manufacturer in Morrisville, Vt.

Police say six other people were treated and released at the scene at Hearthstone on Wednesday.

Authorities say the spill, which included paint with multiple chemicals in it, caused several people to feel lightheaded and nauseous and some complained of chest pain.

The Vermont Occupational Safety and Health Administration is investigating.
