13 Suffer Flash Burns at Discovery Museum

More than a dozen people suffered flash burns at the Nevada Discovery Museum in Reno on Wednesday afternoon. Nine of them, including 8 children, were taken to Renown Regional Medical Center for treatment. Reno Fire Department investigators worked with museum officials to discover what caused the chemical flash. Air tests were conducted to make sure there were no hazardous materials in the air. The museum was closed for the rest of the day, and Center Street was closed from Stewart to Liberty for a time.
