Hazmat Crews At Chemical Spill On Loop 323

Hazmat crews are trying to determine the best way to clean up a chemical spill that occurred a little under two hours ago.

A truck with approximately 500 gallons of fuel additive lost its load at the corner of Highway 31 West and Loop 323.

About half of the chemical leaked out onto the road and into the storm sewer system.

Authorities on the scene say the chemical is as flammable as diesel fuel.

Hazmat is on the scene to determine how to clean the spill as well as keep it from going into any local creeks.
