Crews extinguish chemical fire in Stanly County

STANLY COUNTY, NC (WBTV) - Crews responded to a chemical fire at a Stanly County warehouse Wednesday afternoon.

Officials say it happened at Talley Farms in the 6300 block of Talley Road. Charlotte Fire Department's Hazmat crews assisted with the chemical fire, which was extinguished around 1 p.m.

Stanly County officials say the fire involved pallets of chemicals used in the feed mill process. Hydrogen peroxide and ammonium were the primary threats.

Crews say some of the containers continued to leak after the fire was put out, so the Regional Hazmat Response Team from Charlotte was called in to help. The chemicals have since been "contained and secured."

No injuries were reported.
