Leaking carbon dioxide tank prompts Hazmat Response

Tuesday, September 28, 2010

A leaking tank of carbon dioxide that closed traffic on Barstow between Chestnut and Willow has been capped. Traffic on Barstow is now flowing through the area.

The leak prompted a hazmat response from the Fresno Fire Department. Authorities say the leaking container was a 14-ton liquid carbon dioxide cylinder.

The leak was plugged Tuesday morning. No one was injured, but police closed surrounding streets as a precaution.
