Update on Portland hazmat

Posted by CFA Connect

CFA is continuing to monitor a hazardous materials incident in the Port of Portland area.

The hazmat incident began on Saturday when the inner lining of a 30,000 tonne insulated tank ruptured around 2.45pm. The inaccessibility of the tank and the temperatures of the material have resulted in CFA crews being on scene for considerable time monitoring the leak and transferring contents of the ruptured tank to a recovery vessel.

For the latest incident information, please see the warnings page of the CFA website here:
