Local News

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — An unexpected chemical reaction caused the Syracuse Fire Department Hazmat team to respond to the 400 block of West Taylor Street on Syracuse’s west side just before 12 p.m. Wednesday.

A 44-gallon plastic drum was generating some type of heat after a worker combined two acids into the drum. The hazmat team neutralized the acid and stopped the reaction. Everything was back to normal by 2:30 p.m. and no one was hurt.
