Seattle Fire responded to an emergency hazardous materials call at 21st and Yesler around 9:45 Thursday morning.
The address of the call matches the Odessa Brown Children’s Clinic. Scanner reports indicate that there was a chemical spill, and one person may be sick.
Seattle Fire reports multiple sick patients via Twitter, though it sounds like only one according to the scanner: “SFD Haz Mat Team responding to Children’s Clinic on 2101 East Yesler Way for multiple sick patients. PIO responding to scene.”
Traffic is reportedly blocked. We will update as we learn more.
It would be good to know what the chemical(s) was and how much was spilled? Thanks.
Is there is precautions that residents and businesses should take that are located within close proximity? If so, let me know the procedures.
If SFD has not said anything, then I would say you’re ok. It sounds like a small spill that hurt the person trying to clean it up. Will have more info soon.
