Wednesday afternoon, the Morris Fire Protection and Ambulance District reported to a scene on Illinois 47, just south of the Morris Municipal Airport, where two anhydrous ammonia tanks on one trailer had rolled over.
Each tank had a 1,000-gallon capacity, but both were reported as empty. But if the tanks are less than 5 percent full, that is considered empty, noted Chief Tracey Steffes.
To verify how much was contained in the tanks, Illinois State Police HazMat was called out before the tanks were turned upright.
Traffic in the area was shut down for a brief time, said Steffes. No injuries were reported.
