Chemical spill closes streets in Colonial Heights

COLONIAL HEIGHTS, VA (WWBT) - The Colonial Heights Fire Department is investigating a leaking insecticide tank that shut down several streets Wednesday morning.

A school worker first noticed the overturned portable tank on Conduit Road just before 8:00 a.m. A section of the road from West Roslyn Road to East Westover Ave. was shut down for the minor leak.

The mess was cleaned up without any injuries or evacuations. Investigators are now trying to figure out how the tank got there and who it belongs to. If you have any information on the case, call the Fire Marshal's Office at 804-520-93766 or email
