HazMat team called to Benicia neighborhood

BENICIA (BCN) -- Residents of a home in Benicia were evacuated and neighbors are sheltering in place after a hazardous materials spill this morning, Benicia Fire Chief Jim Lydon said.

A liquid spilled on the floor of a garage at 509 Viewmont St. around 11:30 a.m. and interacted with another substance to form a gas cloud, Lydon said.

Two ambulances responded as a precaution but there are no injuries from the spill, Lydon said.

Benicia police said Viewmont Street is closed between East Fifth and Lindo streets.

Lydon said a hazardous materials team from agencies in Solano County is responding to the spill.
