MANHATTAN (PIX11) — The 9/11 memorial at the World Trade Center site has reopened to the public after fumes from the fountains caused a brief evacuation Sunday afternoon.
Officials say one of the fountains at 180 Greenwich St. was emitting an odor around 2:11 p.m. The Hazmat team responded and reported the fumes came from a cleaning agent used to clean the 9/11 Memorial pool.
The fountains have not been turned back on.
No injuries have been reported. Some people have reported coughing, according to Twitter posts.
