06-17-15 Firefighters Respond to Fire/Chemical Leak at NA Industries

When the flames erupted, the workers evacuated the site and called 911. The s2m2 Fire Department received the alarm at 10:44 a.m. and responded to the scene with six fire companies. When plant employees told firefighters that there might be a leak of a hazardous chemical, the department's haz-mat team was also called in. The plant had 27 employees there at the time, and all but a handful were evacuated. No employees were injured.

Tactical Services Chief Danny Hague said the fire caused the building's automatic deluge sprinkler system to activate, which helped the firefighters get the fire under control in roughly 15 minutes. Sometime before or during that operation, one firefighter was exposed to a chemical in the plant and complained of some skin irritation. The firefighter was transported by Hamilton County EMS to Erlanger Medical Center, where he was expected to be treated and released. Two additional firefighters were transported later to Erlanger to be checked out as a precaution.

Chief Hague said the fire occurred in the rack piping system in the process building. After conducting an initial investigation, workers at the plant said the fire erupted after a line carrying the chemical Maleic Anhydride ruptured. After the fire was extinguished, workers closed valves on the line to stop the leak. Though plant employees are still trying to determine how much of the Maleic Anhydride leaked, Chief Hague said that whatever escaped the ruptured line was kept on site and did not present a threat to the public. The scene was turned back over to NA Industry employees, who would begin the cleanup process and conduct an investigation as to how the incident occurred.

NA Industries makes detergent and concrete additives. s2m2 police, EPB and s2m2-Hamilton County Rescue all provided assistance on the scene.
