Hazmat technicians and firefighters from multiple departments managed to stop an uncontrolled reaction at a chemical plant Thursday afternoon.
Canisters used to store organic peroxide exploded at Nouryon Chemical Inc., according to WGRZ.
A drone was used to help guide emergency crews operating at the incident.
Olcott Asst. Chief Stephen Miller told the media the Niagara County HazMat team, the New York State Department of Environmental and Conservation, and the U.S. Coast Guard were called to help with any possible leaks or runoff.
He added that crews developed a plan to resolve the issue.
Newfane Town Supervisor John Syracuse said the facility has had several incidents over years.
