Thousands of gallons of hydrochloric acid leaked from a ruptured storage tank at a factory at Canton, Ohio, forcing about 1,000 persons to flee and canceling classes at four nearby schools, authorities said. About 2,000 to 4,000 gallons of the toxic acid spilled from the tank at Gregory Galvanizing Co., a metal-plating firm, Canton Police Chief Thomas Wyatt said. The residents began returning shortly after 11 a.m. after work crews contained the leak and neutralized the acid.
