LAFD Hazmat Squad on scene at Sun Valley recycling center

A hazardous materials team was sent Thursday morning to a recycling center on the 9200 block of Tujunga Avenue in the Sun Valley area, where some people may have been exposed to an unknown chemical, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.

Firefighters evaluated the 49 people who evacuated the building at Waste Management’s Sun Valley Recycling Park, and there were no medical complaints, said LAFD spokeswoman Margaret Stewart.

No one was transported to the hospital, she added.

The LAFD Hazmat Squad was entering the building to look for hazardous chemicals, Stewart said.
