A hazardous materials team responded to a sulfuric acid spill in Lawrence Monday evening, according to state and local fire officials. The spill, which was reported just before 8 p.m., took place at C.I.L. Inc., a metal finishing plant, according to Larry Foote of the Lawrence Fire Department. The plant, located at 400 Canal St., sits in a commercial area and residents were not in danger, Foote said. At least two people were working in the plant at the time of the spill, but according to Foote, no one was hospitalized. It is unclear whether anyone sustained minor injuries. Neither state nor local officials could confirm the cause of the spill.
