Anhydrous spill in Labette County

Updated:

On January 26th at 9:54 PM, Labette County 911 Dispatch received a report of an anhydrous spill, occurring at 4:40 PM on 10000 Road in a field. It was further reported a farmer was in the process of applying the anhydrous in the field when a malfunction occurred causing the uncontrolled release of anhydrous. The tank, having a 1500 gallon capacity, was believed to have been half full at the time of the incident.

Upon emergency responders arriving on scene, deputies restricted traffic into the mile section as the Altamont Fire Department entered the area to assess possible Hazmat concerns. As a result, it was determined access to the area would be restricted briefly to allow the anhydrous to dissipate. At 11:32 PM, deputies cleared from the area. No injuries were reported and it was determined evacuation was not necessary.
