Hazmat Response at Lyon Village Shopping Center

Arlington firefighters and the hazardous materials team responded to the Lyon Village Shopping Center around 12:20 this afternoon for a strong chemical odor. Several people in the Starbucks reported feeling ill as a result of the odor.

Firefighters went up to the roof and came down with a bucket of epoxy that was being used for some sort of roofing work.

A building inspector and a health inspector are on their way to the shopping center to evaluate the situation.

The Starbucks appeared to be closed, but all other stores in the shopping center — including popular lunch spots The Italian Store and BGR The Burger Joint — are still open.

Update at 12:55 p.m. — The building and health inspector are on the scene, and fire crews are packing up.
