Chemical Spill Causes Evacuation and Street Closure in Truganina.


Approximately 20 firefighters, including specialist Hazmat crews, are responding to a suspected chemical leak in Truganina.

An FRV spokesperson advised that FRV and CFA crews were called to the Nitton Drive incident about 8:20am after a caller to Triple Zero (000) reported a strong vapour.

Firefighters arrived on scene to find  a chemical had spilled from a drum into a contained area, and evacuated 40 people.

Hazmat crews are on scene working to mitigate the spill.

FRV is working alongside Victoria Police and Ambulance Victoria at the scene.
