No charges are being filed after police thought they came across a drug lab in Hell's Kitchen.

Firefighters went to a five story walk-up on West 54th Street after getting a call about an ammonia smell coming from an apartment.

Two floors were evacuated.

Police initially suspected it was a meth-producing operation, but now say they found legal bath salts.

The Department of Environmental Protection will run its own tests on the substance.
