The hazmat situation at a Boise pool Friday was started when two chemicals were accidentally mixed.

Boise Fire Department investigators determined the incident at the Fairmont Pool was the result of two pool chemicals being accidentally mixed during a service delivery. The accident happened at a nearby maintenance shed.

The reaction turned into a gas that caused several people in the area to feel sick. 

BFD says all 14 patients that were taken to the hospital were treated and released.
