Analgesic spill at dentist's office brings hazmat team

Hazardous materials teams were called to handle the spill of an analgesic at a dentist's office in South Tucson, AZ, last week, according to a story on KGUN9-TV.

The unidentified pain medication, which is used in root canal procedures, is potent to the skin in large quantities, fire officials said.

Two people were taken to a hospital for evaluation after a small bottle of the substance was accidentally dropped on the floor of the office, according to the story.
