Acid spill closes Pole Line for several hours near Twin Falls Home Depot
Area responders worked for about six hours Thurday attempting to decipher a spill on Pole Line road, near the Twin Falls Home Depot.
Fire officials tell KMVT, at 10:50am they received multiple calls about a spill from a container that looked like a weed sprayer laying on the road.
Reports said visible vapor was rising from the surface. Regional Response Hazmat Team Five conducted a series of tests on the matter.
The mysterious spill turned out to be muriatic acid, a corrosive liquid used for cleaning and etching stone, brick or concrete.
Hazmat neutralized the acid with soda ash, and departments cleared the area at 5:00pm.
All in all, a little less than two gallons total had spilled.
