HazMat Crews Respond To Chemical Spill In Santa Fe Springs

SANTA FE SPRINGS (CBSLA.com) — HazMat crews Thursday investigated a chemical spill in Santa Fe Springs.

Fire officials were called to a trucking company in the 12000 block of Clark Street at 6:50 a.m., officials said.

A chemical spill inside a truck at a loading dock caused an irritant, which dissipates as it moves, to be released into the air, officials said.

The chemical can affect eyes, but was not considered deadly, according to authorities.

Local residents were asked to stay indoors, and businesses volunteered to keep employees inside while fire officials and HazMat crews worked on the situation.

No injuries were reported.
