OVERFLOWING WITH LIME
Lorain Firefighters were called to the Lorain Utilities Department Thursday afternoon after a silo that was being filled with Lime overflowed. Firefighters, Coast Guard and members of the Lorain County Hazardous Materials Unit secured the scene to evaluate the situation. Officials cleaned up the spill simply by washing it away with water. Lorain Fire sent up their aerial truck and began washing the silo and adjacent buildings.
The Coast Guard closed off the opening for boats until the Fire Department deemed the area safe.
