Tanker fire shuts down I-15 in Salt Lake City
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 News) - A tanker fire on I-15 southbound near 1800 South in Salt Lake City has the interstate shutdown.

Right now, southbound I-15 at 1300 South is closed, and UDOT has also closed multiple on and off ramps in the area.

According to the Utah Highway Patrol, this crash happened around 1:30 a.m. when a sedan left its lane and crashed into a wall. The car then bounced back into traffic and crashed into the semi-truck. The truck then jack-knifed and flipped over at which time it, and the 8,000 gallons of fuel it was carrying, caught on fire.

The Utah Highway Patrol says both drivers were taken to the hospital, but we don't know the extent of their injuries. The crash is still under investigation, but officials say drowsy driving might have played a role.

‘Honey Oil’ lab explosion blows rear wall from kitchen
A home in the 700 block of Vineyard Avenue was damaged by an explosion from a honey oil lab Saturday night, according to the Madera police department. 
Such labs  are illegal, and are used to refine marijuana into THC, or tetrahydricannabinol, the active chemical in marijuana.
The making of honey oil is explosive, due to the use of butane or other solvents to extract the drug.
The 23-year-old resident of the house was alone at the time, and sustained burns to his face and arms. He was taken to an area hospital where he remains as of Monday, according to police. His name is not being released pending the ongoing investigation. No other injuries were reported. 
EMS and firefighters initially thought they were responding to a small kitchen fire, according to Madera police Sgt. Mark Trukki.

UCF contractor burned in chemical reaction inside building
ORLANDO, Fla. (FOX 35 Orlando) - Authorities say a chemical reaction inside a University of Central Florida maintenance building caused a contractor to suffer serious burns.

Orange County Fire Rescue spokesman Mike Jachles says a 29-year-old contractor was injured in the explosion Monday afternoon and taken to a hospital.

"The 29-year-old man sustained burns to his upper body - his face, arms, chest. Fortunately he was wearing goggles, he was wearing protection, or the injuries could have been much worse," said Mike Jachles with Orange County Fire Rescue.

No students were affected by the incident.  Officials believe the contractor was transferring powdered chemicals when a static charge caused the reaction. No one else was in the employee-only building at the time.

tenneiah - Wolf's Bane
It's a world ruled by the humans.

It's been 30 years of wolves getting hunted and killed by them. 30 years of prejudice, taboos and discrimination between both species. 30 years since the leader of the werewolves was murdered, trying to achieve peace.

Still after 30 years, a nerd named Izuku finds himself assisting an injured wolf in the middle of the night, in the heart of Tokyo.

UPDATE: Marshfield apartment building evacuated after household chemical spill
Four people were sent to the hospital to be checked over after a household chemical mishap and evacuation at an apartment building for the elderly in Marshfield Friday night.

Deputy Fire Chief Troy Weiland tells NewsChannel 7 they got a call just after 9pm that there was a strange smell coming from a hallway in the Cedar Rail Apartments on South Cedar Street.

Once crews arrived on the scene, they traced the smell to one apartment. Weiland says one person had spilled an acetone-based product and used bleach to try to clean it up, creating the noxious fumes.

Residents of the three-story building were evacuated to another owned by the same company. Four people, two residents and the first two police officers on the scene were sent to the hospital to be checked over. At least one had burning eyes. Weiland says the checkup by the doctors was mostly precautionary.

Technician suffers chemical burns at Milford research company
MILFORD – An employee at Nitto Avecia was hospitalized with chemical burns Friday after being splashed with a form of acid at the Fortune Boulevard research company.

The technician was taking apart a hose connection late Friday morning, but did not realize the hose was pressurized and was splashed with the acid. The technician – who was wearing protective equipment – immediately hit the emergency shutdown, helping contain the spill to one room. That room is specially designed to contain a chemical spill, Fire Chief William Touhey said outside the scene.

The technician decontaminated twice in an emergency shower at the facility before being taken to Milford Regional Medical Center.

The technician was not immediately identified, and Touhey did not have a condition update while at the scene Friday.

The chief is unsure how much of the substance was spilled. A state hazmat team responded and was assessing the situation before cleanup operations began Friday afternoon, said Touhey.

The facility was evacuated and there were no other reported injuries. The chief anticipated employees would be able to get back into other parts of the building later in the day.

After a recent chemical spill at the Lafayette Utilities, UL officials call for caution
A minor chemical spill at the Lafayette Utilities System North Water Plant last week led to an evacuation order, an investigation and 14 people seeking medical treatment, according to multiple reports.

Hydrated lime was released as a cloud or fine dust from the plant, polluting the air in the area and covering surrounding buildings. The spill prompted officials at the plant, Lafayette Fire Department, Lafayette Police Department and Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality to evacuate the surrounding area. The evacuation order was lifted on Feb. 4.

Associate professor of chemistry Eric Taylor, Ph.D., warned of the potential dangers of breathing the substance.

“It’s not what you call a particularly serious dangerous chemical, but it’s not something you’d want to play with either,” Taylor said. “It’s an irritant. It’s a caustic material, so you don’t want to breathe it in or put it on your skin because it would damage your skin and injure you….LUS did get people out of the area rather quickly, which is to their credit. You don’t want them to be there to be injured by it, and you don’t want people in the way while they are trying to clean it up.”
