Haz-Mat Team Called In After Resident Mixes Cleaning Chemicals

The Haz-Mat team was called in last night after a resident mixed two cleaning agent together, setting off a reaction, Fire Chief Rodney Youmans says. A resident in the area of Forest Avenue phoned police after she mixed Oxi Clean with Bright White to use with clothing, causing it to become warm and give off fumes.

The Fire Department responded to the home and upon arrival called for the Berkeley Haz-Mat team.

  1. Bright White is a laundry detergent that is sold in a white plastic bottle. It is sold in most grocery stores along with all the other detergents. It gets any stain out – even rust stains from shirts!
    Sometimes you have to let it soak overnight, but it always works on any kind of stain.

  2. Hope the haz mat team will charge for stupidity. They may stop coming into town like ciu. Remember when Lakewood had a haz mat team? No need to call another town in. But like everything else money is more important than safety.
