CCAD Placed on Lockdown After Nitric Acid Spill

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

A chemical spill at the Corpus Christi Army Depot had workers on high alert Thursday afternoon.

Several buildings inside of the government facility were placed on lockdown just after lunchtime, when 240 gallons of nitric acid were leaked from a delivery truck valve outside of the CCAD building.

A 100 square-foot area was blocked off, and gates to Naval Air Station-Corpus Christi were closed for about 40 minutes until HazMat crews were able to clean up the spill.

It was all cleaned up by around 1:45 p.m.

Kiii News Reporter Michael Gibson went Live from CCAD with the details.
