A mercury spill that forced two Jackson families out of their apartments last Friday has been cleared.

The Jackson County Health Department evacuated the apartments after it was discovered some children had been playing with the toxic chemical.

Investigators believe the mercury leaked out of a tool box.

No one was hospitalized in the incident.

Health officials say once the clean up is complete the families can move back into their apartments.

    Well what was the mercury doing in a tool box to begin with? And why didn't the person the tool box belong to take the responsability for it. Those kids that were playing wiht it could have become very sick.
