Avenue Louis Pasteur shut as hazmat crews deal with small acid spill at medical-school building
The Boston Fire Department reports crews rushed to 77 Ave. Louis Pasteur around 3 p.m. when a doctor moving some bottles of chemicals on the tenth floor jostled three bottles of acid that dropped to the ground and broke.
The doctor, wearing full protective gear, was not hurt when the two-liter bottles, containing hydrochloric acid and acetic acid, broke. She "self-deconned" herself and was allowed to leave after being checked out by Boston EMTs.
Police began re-opening the road to traffic shortly after 5:30 p.m.
