LENEXA, Kan. -- Firefighters and hazardous materials experts were on the scene of the Beta Chem facility near 101st and Santa Fe in Lenexa Friday afternoon.

Representatives from the Kansas Department of Health and Environment were there in the morning to seize the property. The business owner was no longer allowed to operate after his license was revoked for not having appropriate permits.

Haz-mat experts were concerned that some of the contents they were seizing were not properly labeled, so they closed down Santa Fe from 101st Terr. to 99th.

The chemicals are flammable, but there was no danger to the public, a Kansas Dept. of Health and Environment spokesman said.
