LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Emergency personnel spent most of the day Sunday at a chemical leak at Dow Chemical on Campground road in Rubbertown, but after several hours officials gave the "all-clear" to local residents.

According to Metrosafe dispatchers a portion of the roadway was shutdown at Campground Road and Ralph Ave.

Officials on the scene told WAVE 3 that a train car was leaking a highly flammable chemical called Methyl Methacrylate. Dow chemical was evacuated as a precaution and residents were asked to stay indoors.
