No one was injured Sunday morning after an ammonia leak forced a brief street closure in Orem.

Orem police Sgt. Craig Martinez said a faulty seal caused the ammonia leak about 8:30 a.m. at the Meadow Gold plant.

Authorities closed State Street in the area of 900 South as a precaution for about 45 minutes while the leak was repaired.
