NEVADA – In a recent incident at the Spanish Springs Library, a small Mercury spill has been confirmed, leading to the involvement of the Sparks Fire Department and TMFR (Truckee Meadows Fire Rescue) at the scene. As a precautionary measure, all library patrons and employees have been confined to the facility until the cleanup process is completed and further contamination is ruled out. Consequently, the library has been closed indefinitely.

The initial report prompted an immediate response from the Hazmat team, with firefighters and specialized personnel working diligently to address the situation. The safety and well-being of all occupants were paramount, and it is reassuring to note that everyone has been safely evacuated from the building, and no injuries have been reported.

To ensure public safety and prevent any potential risks, the Spanish Springs Library building and its parking lot will remain closed until the situation is fully resolved. Authorities are actively managing the hazmat situation and taking appropriate measures to address the spill and mitigate any potential hazards.

The local authorities continue to investigate the cause of the Mercury spill and will take necessary steps to prevent such incidents in the future.
