A sulfuric acid leak at a Burlington County battery company on Saturday caused respiratory issues for three New Jersey state troopers, who were taken by ambulance to Virtua Memorial Hospital in Mount Holly as a precaution, authorities said.



The leak at Hoppecke Batteries Inc., on Berry Drive in Hainesport, was reported at 10:17 a.m., said David Kinney, supervisor in the Burlington County 911 call center.

The three troopers were on site to help secure the area and their injuries appeared to be minor, said Trooper Alejandro Goez. The county hazardous materials unit also was on the scene.





The amount of leaked acid was reported to be 25 gallons. The site has since been cleared, Kinney said.
