      Chemical spill discovered in Escanaba

      The Escanaba Department of Public Safety reports that a chemical spill happened on Friday at around 8:54 a.m. near Walmart.

      According to reports, a small spill of polyphosphorous acid was discovered in the parking lot of Walmart in Escanaba. Officers took steps to mitigate the spill and waited for U.P. Environmental to conduct a small scale clean-up operation.

      Public safety says that the spill originated from a leaking container in a dry box on a semi truck. The semi truck's destination was a local business in the City of Gladstone.
