Taos Fire controls chemical spill at RAC Transport

Posted

Taos Volunteer Fire Department controlled a chemical spill of an unknown substance that pooled in the ground at RAC Transport at 809 Gusdorf Road in Taos Friday morning (Oct. 18).

A firetruck arrived at the scene of the spill around 9:30 a.m. at the RAC headquarters located near two apartment complexes just down the road from Taos High School.

Inside the fenced entrance to the headquarters, a large container on a tranport pallet in front of the company's open bay door appeared to have been damaged. Around it, a blue liquid pooled on the ground.

Taos firefighters controlled the spill as of 10 a.m., but were still working to absorb the chemicals from the ground.

RAC provides transport services  in New Mexico, Colorado, Arizona and Texas.
