Several people have been rushed to hospital after being exposed to a chemical substance at a workplace at Browns Plains this afternoon.
Queensland Ambulance says it happened on Grand Plaza Drive at around 12:30pm.
QAS Senior Operations Supervisor Chris Perera says up to 13 patients were assessed at the scene:
"There were three stable patients that had some serious difficulty in breathing, airway irritability.
Two of those were transported to the RBH Hospital with a further three other patients that were quite stable transported for a variety of symptoms including headaches, itchy eyes and feeling dizzy to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital".
Queensland Fire and Emergency Service says officers have now been brought in to investigate the chlorine odour, which they believe was caused by a welder.
