An acid spill in San Rafael Sunday afternoon led to at least four people going to the hospital.

Authorities tell ABC7 News that shortly after noon, muriatic acid was spilled inside a garage on Quietwood Drive.

Two adults suffered unknown injuries and were taken to the hospital. Their two children went with them.

Muriatic acid is often used in swimming polls and is also an industrial cleanser.
