VERO BEACH, Fla. -- Sexton Plaza and a hotel were closed for a time after a chlorine leak at a nearby Holiday Inn Thursday morning.

Investigators say a hose used to transfer chlorine to the hotel pool broke and created chlorine vapor in the air.

5 hotel workers complained of exposure to the fumes and were treated at the scene.
