Hazmat unit called to Invista Plant

Kingston, ON, Canada / CKWS TV

A situation unfolded at a Kingston plant this afternoon. Several fire crews were called to the Invista plant on front road.

A chemical spill was reported just before three o’clock.

More than a half dozen Kingston fire rescue trucks were said to be on site – as well as the fire department’s hazmat unit, which has only been used twice in the last 8 years.

A security worker tells CKWS there was no danger to the public – and the bulk of the cleanup took roughly thirty minutes to complete.

There is no word on what caused the spill.
