PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — A chemical spill created a big mess and shut down part of 5th Avenue in Coraopolis Monday.

The Hazmat team and EPA officials were called to the scene around 4 p.m.

Officials say a tractor-trailer started leaking fuel with a kerosene additive in the 700-block of 5th Avenue.

The road in that area was shut down for much of the evening.

Mayor Anthony Celeste wrote on Facebook:

“5th Avenue is shut down from family video down. A tanker truck spilled a highly flammable chemical all down the road. They are calling in hazmat. Please be careful and take another route.”

The fuel leak was contained.

No evacuations were reported either.

The road has since been reopened.
