According to KHOU.com, a Houston, Texas venue hosting a HELLYEAH concert had to be evacuated late Friday night (January 15) due to an ammonia leak at a food processing plant nearby.
A number of people contacted the the Houston fire and police departments starting at around 10:30 p.m. to complain about a strong chemical smell at Dallas and Ennis streets near BBVA Compass Stadium.
The Houston Fire Department spent around 30 minutes attempted to track down the source of the smell after evacuating Warehouse Live about three-fourths into the HELLYEAH’s performance.
A security guard at the Freedman Food Services warehouse waved the firefighters down, at which point it was discovered that one of the pipes for the cooling system there had cracked and leaked ammonium. They said the smell carried for about 10 blocks.
No injuries were reported as a result of the leak.
HELLYEAH recently entered The Hideout Recording Studio in Las Vegas, Nevada to record its fifth album for an early 2016 release. The new CD is once again being produced by Kevin Churko, who previously worked with HELLYEAH on 2014’s “Blood For Blood” album.
