Spill on Breckenridge Road in Hadley posed no danger
HADLEY — A 500-gallon tank filled with water and a small amount of liquid fertilizer slipped off the back of a farm truck on Breckenridge Road Wednesday morning, but the spill that resulted was not hazardous.
Hadley Fire Capt. Michael Spanknebel said he contacted Helena Chemical, the producer of the fertilizer, to determine whether it contained a harmful level of chemicals and was told it did not.
“It was not a hazmat issue,” he said.
The fire department was on the scene at 11:19 a.m. and made the initial call that there was no danger, he said.
