TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — The Tucson Fire Department's HAZMAT unit responded to a situation at Banner University Medical Center on Thursday.

Firefighters say two employees began to feel faint and nauseous as they were working inside a "clean room" or a contained environment.

They refused treatment once the fire department arrived.

This HAZMAT team has received all normal readings and are clearing the scene.
