QUEENSGATE, OH (FOX19) -

Eighth Street is about to reopen at Dalton Avenue after a chemical spill scare.

Police responded to an 8:30 a.m. report of a white powdery substance leaking from a CSX train rail car. A Hazmat crew also was called.

The situation quickly de-escalated, however, when CSX officials said the rail car was just carrying rock salt.

FOX19 now has a crew at the scene and will continue to update this story on air and online.
