Follow-up to: Los Alamos sends reverse-911 call warning

Title: DP Road open after HAZMAT situation on lab property
Source: Los Alamos Monitor
Date Updated: March 14, 2012 at 9:46 pm ET
[...] Lab spokesman Kevin Roark said at 1:15 p.m. that as part of the lab’s cleanup effort at MDA-B, workers were drilling into a one-liter bottle under highly controlled conditions and then something inside the bottle reacted with the air and caused a small fire. [...]
Teams were working to determine what the substance was, trying to analyze what gas was released from the container and swabs were taken of the bottle. Roark said there was no timetable for any release of details concerning what the substance actually was. [...]
Police said a voluntary evacuation was taking place on DP Road. Police said for those who are working on DP Road to remain inside if they chose to stay. Businesses along DP Road still were waiting for an all-clear signal as of 7:30 p.m. [9:30p ET]
An automated 911 call was received at the Los Alamos Monitor at 1:05 p.m. advising all people on DP Road to shelter in place until the all-clear signal is sounded.
Stay tuned to for more details on this developing story.
