Hazardous chemical situations are being dealt with this afternoon in two locations in Boone—and what lead to each is being investigated. Boone Fire is trying to clean up what appears to be some sort of fuel spill into a creek running parallel to King Street behind Toyota of Boone, passing under the street at Chestnut Street.
The fire department is putting absorbent into the creek to try to soak up the liquid, which appears red in color and smells of kerosene. There have been reports called into the fire department with information about where the substance may have come from.
