A chemical spill at a business in St. Louis brought firefighters in hazardous materials suits to the scene Tuesday afternoon.
Firefighters got the call to the Elantas Electrical Insulation Company at 5200 North Second Street on Tuesday.
Workers were pouring an accelerant to an epoxy resin into a 250 gallon container when the chemicals flowed over, said St. Louis Fire Capt. Garon Mosby. He said the accelerant was added too quickly.
Firefighters wearing HazMat suits worked to keep the area safe while the chemicals ran their course and settled, he said.
The chemical was a corrosive and an inhalation hazard but no one was injured, he said.
