EVERETT — Several members of the fire department at Naval Station Everett were taken to the hospital this morning as a precaution after a small hazardous materials spill at the base, officials said.
A man who was delivering a package containing a cleaning compound also was transported to Providence Regional Medical Center Everett, said Kristin Ching, a public affairs officer for the base. Ching said the man received a leg injury. She didn’t immediately know how.
The incident occurred around 9 a.m. and led to the evacuation of the Fleet Industrial Supply Center on the base, Ching said. Everett medic and fire crews were called.
The package fell to the ground, causing the leak, but it’s not clear how the accident occurred, Ching said.
