INDIANAPOLIS - Firefighters evacuated a Chase Bank branch in Lawrence on Thursday after several workers reported feeling sick.

Around 9:15 a.m., at least two employees of the Chase Bank at 42nd Street and Franklin Road reported being overcome by a noxious odor.

The two workers who had trouble breathing were treated on scene.

The health department was expected to do further testing.
