Va. Firefighters Deal With Chemical Spill, Fire
Nov. 21--TOANO -- A small chemical fire at Greystone Manufacturing was contained in about ten minutes by the James City-Bruton Volunteer Fire Department on Friday afternoon.
According to fire department spokesman Bill Apperson, the fire involved a small spill of a chemical called "enprep," which is used in the industrial treatment of metal. However, he said, the exact cause of the fire is still under investigation.
It was reported at approximately 1 p.m. No injuries were reported, Apperson said, and the building did not sustain any damage.
He noted that because the chemical is very hazardous, the firefighters had to use special gear and go through a decontamination process before leaving the facility.
"It's something that requires a great deal of caution," Apperson said, "so that's why we were super, super careful."
