“HAZMAT specialists arrived on the site to check the air. At the time officials were unsure if the spill was caused by a leak. LifeZette obtained a screenshot from emergency responders saying that the chemical was ‘mustard gas’, according to a fire marshal from the County.
“Despite initial reports of the chemical being identified as ‘mustard gas’ by on-scene emergency personnel, emergency officials later confirmed that the chemicals are believed to be a “hypochlorite solution” and “35% sulfuric acid”.
Our @hcfmo HAZMAT team and pollution control department are providing support to @springfdtx No indication of air quality or chemical leaks in the surrounding area at this time but please avoid the area if possible. We will be sharing further updates shortly. https://t.co/A5Hpqv9UkU
