Arizona nitric acid leak: Shelter-in-place order reinstated after Tucson interstate crash
Arizona Department of Public Safety warns residents to avoid crash area, turn off heaters and air conditioning

By Julia Musto | Fox News

  Arizona authorities announced Wednesday morning that a Tuesday afternoon shelter-in-place order following a deadly rollover that resulted in a hazmat spill has been reinstated.

"Unified Command has reinstated the shelter in place order for a one-mile perimeter around the incident. While crews were attempting to remove the load from the commercial vehicle, gassing occurred. I-10 remains closed in both directions between Kolb & Rita roads in Tucson," the Arizona Department of Public Safety tweeted.

Residents were advised to avoid the area and seek alternate routes of travel, and the department said that Unified Command anticipates an "extensive closure."

Anyone within a one-mile perimeter of the incident was instructed to turn off heaters as well as air conditioning systems that bring in outside air.

  • I was a "conspiracy theorist". Now I'm just right.
This is beginning to look like a trend, at least in reporting.

If these materials aren't transported, industry stops.

There is more to these wrecks than just infrastructure.

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

Curious how the article doesn't mention how the accident occurred.

It just says a rollover, and that while they were attempting to remove the cargo (presumably to another truck) "gassing occurred" (which means something leaked).

That doesn't look like fire; that looks like outgassing of a red gas.
Nitirc acid fumes.

Nitirc acid fumes.

Fumes from the acid itself being on fire, or from the acid sublimating into a vapor?

Just vapor.

Fuming nitric acid gives off a red gas.
