WBND’s Daryl Bjoraas ‘Doing Fine’ After Report From Scene of Chemical Fire Lands Him in the Hospital
“Daryl is doing fine. He responded to the breaking news scene before mandatory evacuations were ordered,” WBND news director Aaron Ramey told TVSpy in an email. “He was feeling ill and was taken to the hospital as a precaution.”
The fire began Friday night at a vacant chemical plant that is currently undergoing a federally-supervised cleanup, according to the AP. Hundreds of residents in a one-mile radius of the factory were evacuated overnight, returning to their homes after the all-clear was given early Saturday morning.
WBND produced two hours of breaking news coverage on the leak Friday evening. Video below:
