All Clear Given After Akron Chemical Plant Explosion


The all clear has been given and those who were evacuated can go back home following a massive chemical plant explosion in Akron. 

Emergency crews were asking people to stay away from the Emerald Performance Materials building near 240 West Emerling Avenue as they dealt with the explosion and fire that followed the blast. 

Chemicals are a suspected factor in the blast, but that hasn't been confirmed yet. Thankfully, no injuries or fatalities have been reported. 

Surrounding businesses were evacuated, and Main Street is closed between Cole and Archwood Avenues.
