FISHERS, Ind. -- Seven people reported burning eyes and coughing following a reported chemical spill at the Fishers YMCA Friday afternoon.

The Fishers Fire Department says none of the patients needed to be taken to the hospital.

Firefighters are still determining what chemical was involved but they believe it is related to the pool.

The leak has been stopped and contained.

This is not the first time that a chemical leak has forced an evacuation of the YMCA at 126th Street in Fishers.

Back in February, firefighters were called out to the facility after a malfunction in the pool area caused a chemical leak.

Six adults and one child were hospitalized in that incident.  Eleven other people were checked out at the scene.
