Hazmat crews called to BA acid leak - Tulsa hazmat crews were called in to help Broken Arrow fire crews on the scene of hydrochloric acid leak Saturday morning.
Officials say the leak was stopped by a containment curb in the work area. No injuries were reported.
The incident happened around 8 a.m. at an industrial building near 61st Street and Aspen Avenue in Broken Arrow. Broken Arrow crews called hazmat because there is an electrical charge involved in the process being ran at the time of the leak, officials say.
Hazmat was able to turn off the electrical charge, stopping the chemical reaction, and turn on ventilation fans.
The company will perform the cleanup, officials say.
There is no word yet on how much acid was released.
