Hazmat and fire have reportedly contained a chemical spill that occurred just east of Cline Avenue in Gary off of US 12/20, or 5th Avenue, around 6:30 this morning. The accident was blocking traffic early today in the East Chicago and Gary areas. Officials say crews responded to Blaine Street for a rollover semi, where hundreds of gallons of sodium hydroxide were said to have spilled. Gary Fire and Lake County Hazardous Materials Response Team were both on scene.
