Close to 150 people were evacuated from a Westminster office building on Wednesday morning after workers reported smelling noxious fumes.

Authorities responded to the four-story building in the 5400 block of Garden Grove Boulevard just after 9 a.m. Twelve people reported feeling sick.

Fire crews determined the fumes were created when cleaning crews were mixing chemicals.

Workers were allowed back in the building a short time later. No one required medical treatment.
