KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- HAZMAT crews rushed to a local dairy overnight Sunday after employees reported a bad odor.
The crews were dispatched just after 1 a.m., to Hiland Dairy on Emanuel Cleaver.
Employees reported smelling very strong fumes. They described it as a foul smell coming from one of the refrigeration units. Hiland Dairy contacted the Kansas City, Mo., fire department and reported that they had some sort of a chemical acid spill due to a hose disconnecting during a delivery.
HAZMAT from Kansas City, Mo., and Kansas City, Kan., arrived on scene.
Emergency workers spent nearly two hours making sure the scene was secure and the spill was isolated.
By 3 a.m., the scene was clear of all emergency workers and employees were allowed back inside.
No one was hurt and all employees were accounted for.
