Acid leak in Dickinson led to brief shelter-in-place

Monday, July 09, 2012

An acid leak at a chemical production facility led to a brief shelter-in-place last night.

It happened around 10pm at the Penreco Facility in Dickinson. Police say a resident called them about a plume of smoke at the facility.

A shelter-in-place was issued for the immediate area, but was lifted an hour later when crews determined the chemical was not hazardous.
