1 person taken to hospital after hazmat situation

The situation took almost 3 hours to clear


CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – Massachusetts’ hazmat team was called to Chicopee, Monday night, to deal with a situation on Fuller Road.

Chicopee Fire Captain Patrick Halpin told 22News two employees at the United Tractor Trailer Training School, Inc. mixed two chemicals in the toilet. Those chemicals created an odor in the building on Fuller Road.

Captain Halpin called in 5 members of the state’s hazmat team around 4:30 p.m. They ventilated the building and gave the all clear around 7:00 p.m.

One employee was taken to the hospital just as a precaution, but is expected to be okay.
