BLUE GRASS ARMY DEPOT, Ky. (LEX 18) The Blue Grass Army Depot announced on Tuesday that during a routine inspection, chemical crews detected a vapor emission in a storage structure which contains nerve agent-filled munitions.

They say that the vapor was detected during a routine analysis of the igloo, or the atmosphere within the structure.

As a safety precaution, officials say a powered filter was connected to the igloo to ensure the vapor does not enter the outside atmosphere.

Detecting, isolating and mitigating vapor emissions are a normal part of the safe and secure chemical storage operations at Blue Grass Chemical Activity.

They say there is no danger or risk to Madison County citizens or surrounding counties.
