Chemical Described as Skin and Eye Irritant Spills, Closes North Glassell Street in Orange
A chemical described as a skin and eye irritant was spilled Monday and resulted in the closure of the north and south lanes of North Glassell Street in Orange, authorities said.

A call was received about 12:25 p.m. about a "hazardous release" or spill from a truck, which carried the chemical Isocyanate, that was stopped in a parking lot, said Ian MacDonald of the City of Orange Fire Department.
