Potential chemical spill in Stoke


A possible chemical spill at a commercial property in Stoke has blocked off McMahon Road and seen several neighbouring buildings evacuated.

Fire units from Stoke and Nelson were called out around 2pm this afternoon and have been joined by St John and three police units.

Detective Senior Sergeant Craig Johnston says it’s a precaution until the fire service can get in and see what the situation is.

“We’ve just been evacuating residents out of the apartments that back onto the premises but that’s just a precaution until we know what we’re dealing with inside the premises.

“The fire service are gearing up to go in now, so we should know soon.”
