Hausfeldt Lane reopens after small chemical leak

Posted: Updated:

NEW ALBANY, Ind. (WDRB) -- A smell of chemicals outside a home in New Albany shut down a portion of Hausfeldt Lane during rush hour.  It reopened about 8:45 p.m. Thursday after crews cleared the scene.

Fire officials say city workers were cleaning a house and smelled a suspicious chemical odor. They called New Albany fire officials to set up a perimeter around the home.

A hazmat team determined no one was hurt.  Two people living in the house were evacuated, and neighbors were advised to shelter in place during cleanup, officials at the scene told WDRB News.

The workers were on contract to the city of New Albany to clean that house, deputy fire chief Brian Gadd said.
