A gas leak at the Amazon warehouse in East Fishkill caused employees to be evacuated last week.

A spokesperson for Amazon describes the leak as “small” and says it was quickly identified.
“Out of an abundance of caution, employees were briefly evacuated. The East Fishkill Fire Department cleared the facility in less than an hour and we thank them for their quick response,” say the representative.
