Got a follow up today from Leslie Hynes at South County Fire after a two-alarm Haz-Mat call out last night on 134th SW in south Everett.

NO INJURIES, NO HAZARDS DETECTED AFTER REPORT OF CHEMICAL SMELL IN COMMERCIAL BUILDING

South County Fire responded for a report of a chemical smell coming through the vents in a commercial building in the 800 block of 134th St. SW in unincorporated Everett last night at 9:37 p.m.

The call was upgraded to a two-alarm hazardous materials response. Firefighters from Everett Fire and Snohomish County Fire District 7 responded to assist. Hazardous materials technicians detected non-hazardous levels of sulfur dioxide inside the building. The gas with a burnt match smell is considered hazardous at levels of 100 parts per million. The highest level detected inside the building was 7 parts per million.

The building was evacuated. No one was injured. It took hazardous materials technicians about four hours to complete air-monitoring throughout the 40,000+ square foot building. No hazards were found. Sulfur dioxide levels were at zero when firefighters cleared the scene around 2 a.m.
