Hazmat crews are at Tyson Foods in West Chester Twp. this morning for a propane tank leak, according to the Journal-News.

The leak was reported at around 9:30 a.m. at the manufacturer on Ohio 747, according to township spokeswoman Barb Wilson.

She said officials have not ordered an evacuation of the building but they are doing air monitoring around the tank.

“They are taking measurements continuously,” she said. “Right up against the tank there are some issues but it’s dissipating, they are not seeing anything much beyond that property. No need at this point for any shelter in place or any concerns.”
