Street closed due to chlorine spill 

San Mateo Fire Department officials today are working to clear four two-gallon containers full of chlorine that appear to have fallen onto a city street from a vehicle at the intersection of Ninth Avenue and South Delaware Street in San Mateo, according to the fire department.

South Delaware Street in the area of Ninth Avenue has been closed to allow for a cleanup team to clear any spilled chlorine, and was expected to be reopened early this afternoon, a police dispatcher said.

Officials were dispatched at about 7:30 a.m. to the intersection and found the containers, Sharon Laner of the fire department said.

No one was evacuated from the area, but people in the immediate area were asked to stay inside, Laner said.
