Chemical Spill Leaks From Store, Onto Little Italy Road

A chemical spill at a cleaning supply company sent Hazmat crews rushing to Little Italy and one dog owner rushing to a veterinarian.

San Diego Fire officials say various chemicals spilled and mixed inside the store near India and Grape streets around 5:45 p.m. The company sells cleaning supplies to restaurants.

The chemicals leaked out of the building, into the roadway, so Hazmat crews were called to monitor the cleanup and make sure the problem did not pose an environmental hazard.

Three people and a dog wandered through the chemicals. The people were deemed fine, but the dog’s owners are taking it to the vet to be checked out.

A few cars parked along the road may need to be towed since the chemical splashed all over them, fire officials say.

Aside from that, the spill is not affecting the public at this point.
