MOUNT KISCO, N.Y. ‒ An acid spill closed Preston Way for several hours Wednesday afternoon, according to Mount Kisco fire officials.
Mount Kisco police received a report around noon that a liquid had spilled on the side of the road near the Target and A&P shopping plaza and appeared to be creating steam, officials said. Firefighters were called to the scene.
"When we got there we found a container that was on the ground with some liquid that was just blowing off steam ... but there wasn't any smoke," a member of the Mount Kisco Independent Fire Company said.
Mount Kisco firefighters and the Westchester County Hazardous Materials Response Team contained the spill. At around 2:30 p.m., the Hazmat team determined the situation was safe, and the road was reopened.
