Area Near Morris Chemical Plant Temporarily Evacuated
MINOOKA, Ill. (CBS) – About 100 residents were returning to their homes in southwest suburban Minooka Sunday evening after a scare involving volatile material at a local industrial plant.
Emergency officials evacuated a neighborhood near Lyondell Bassell at 8805 North Tabler Road Sunday afternoon. Earlier, a power interruption caused a tanker of flammable material to become overheated, Mayor Patrick Brennan said.
The temporarily displaced residents were taken to a local firehouse and out of potential danger.
