CFD, CPD, Rain Thwart Archer Gas Spill

Archer Avenue (just east of Central Avenue) was blocked off in the late morning/early afternoon today due to a crash and gasoline spill involving a large truck.

Chicago Fire Department officials said the spill triggered a  Level I Hazmat response. At least six CFD units responded, as well as a comparable number of police vehicles.

Police secured the area to keep motorists and pedestrians away, CFD took quick action to prevent the spill from spreading; and then a sudden cloud burst washed away most everything.
