Colleyville Fire Department is working on cleaning up a chemical spill at a self-storage facility in the 1800 block of Industrial Blvd. near the intersection of Highway 26.

275 gallons of sulfuric acid were spilled in the facility, according to Mona Gandy with the Colleyville Fire Department.

One person was transported to Baylor Grapevine for chemical burns. Fire officials had no information about his condition.

25 to 30 people have been evacuated from surrounding buildings as a precaution, but there are no indication of airborne hazards, according to Gandy.

The acid traveled down a driveway and went into a storm drain near the spill. Officials do not believe the public is at any risk from the acid that drained into that area.
