Wright State University in southwestern Ohio says an accidental acid spill led officials to evacuate nine buildings and cancel some classes.

No injuries were reported.

The university's website said the nine buildings would remain closed until about 7 a.m. Tuesday.

The website says the cleanup was completed and the university remained open.

The school says employees and students affected by the building closures due to the spill were allowed to re-enter their buildings Monday afternoon to collect personal belongings.
