Hazmat personnel from the Roseville Fire Department responded to a reported leaking railcar in the JR Davis railyard yesterday at about 3:00 pm.


Upon arrival they found a railcar that was leaking denatured alcohol from fittings on top of the car. A quick assessment revealed that a valve was loose and required repair. The repair was made in less than an hour and less than 20 gallons of alcohol was spilled. No injuries were reported and no evacuations were required.
