CSW BREAKING: Chemical Fire Causes Evacuation in KC-MO East Bottoms

A fire in a "500-gallon tank" reportedly containing "epoxy resin" has several KC-MO fire companies and Haz-Mat crews busy in Kansas City MO's East Bottoms.

The incident was reported at 10:11 a.m. Wednesday to be at a business called "Unitex" at ("3101" East) Gardner and Bellfountaine Streets (see BING map image).

A "yellow smoke" coming from the burning product has brought a "100 meter (about 300 feet)" evacuation radius of the incident- but so far only 1 business- "a trucking company" has been so advised.

There's no word if Gardner- a busy route in this industrial area- has been closed- but the situation is on-going.
