Hazmat crews called to UPS facility in Montco

Saturday, April 21, 2012

Hazmat crews were called overnight to a UPS facility in Montgomery County after a big rig caught fire.

Action News was on the scene at the UPS building on the 700 block of Blair Mill Road in Horsham Township.

Crews received a call around 2 this morning of a hazardous material spill inside a big rig.

The truck went up in flames.

Employees who were working at the facility, were evacuated as a precaution.

Two employees were taken to Abington Memorial Hospital after they were reportedly sickened by the toxic fumes.

So far, no word on how it all started.
