April 8, 2001: Ammonia leak forces Old Monroe evacuation

KSDK - In Lincoln County, Missouri on the morning of April 8, 2001, an anhydrous ammonia leak forced the evacuation of Old Monroe.

It was a rude awakening for residents and for rescue crews who had to secure the leak.

NewsChannel 5's Alex Fees tells us the leak likely resulted from attempts to steal the substance.
