Mpls Fire Dept. Responds to Benzene Leak at Rail Yard
The Minneapolis Fire Department was called to a rail yard at 35th and Main Street Northeast around 2 a.m. Friday to check out a possible chemical spill, but they determined there was no danger.
A worker smelled an odor and felt dizzy, so the yard called for help. Hazmat crews determined that a pressure release valve had released a small amount of benzene, but there was no spill.
Paramedics checked out the worker and he was found to be ok.
