Ammonia Leak Closes Ashburn Ice House

A hazardous materials team and other rescue crews spent much of the day on the scene of an ammonia leak from a line at the Ashburn Ice House.

The business was evacuated when the odor was reported before 11 a.m. No one inside at the time of the leak reported any medical concerns.

Crews are working to ensure the scene is safe and a section of Smith Switch Road between Waxpool Road and Gloucester Parkway, behind the business, has been closed to traffic during the work to ventilate the structure.
