Chemical spill in South Dunedin

11:18 am on 2 July 2019

One person was taken to hospital and a freight depot evacuated due to a chemical spill in South Dunedin.

Much of Strathallan Street, in South Dunedin's industrial and commercial zone, was cordoned off after 3 litres of a chemical spilled from a container at PBT Transport.

Fire and Emergency says most of the city's firefighting resources were at the scene and were working to identify the chemical.

One worker from the depot was taken to Dunedin Hospital as a precaution.
