Chemical spill in Baytown fills air with odor

Sunday, October 22, 2006

There's been a spill at the NGO plant in Baytown. As a result, residents in the area of Baytown, League City and Seabrook are smelling a strong odor.

The public is not in danger. It's not a gas leak. It's Mercaptan, a chemical that's put into odorless natural gas, that has spilled. We've received several phone calls from residents saying the odor is strong, but again, the Baytown Fire Department tells us no one is in danger.

The fire department says there is an internal crew working to clean up the spill.
