Authorities say a highway in
northwestern Oklahoma has reopened after an overnight chemical
spill.
The Oklahoma Highway Patrol closed a portion of U.S. Highway 270
between Fort Supply and Woodward about 7:15 p.m. Wednesday after
the spill of mercaptan, the odor in natural gas.
It took a cleanup crew from Guthrie several hours to travel to
the site. Troopers didn’t completely reopen the highway until
shortly after 2 a.m. Thursday.
There are no immediate reports of injuries.
