Workers Exposed To Chemicals, Taken To Hospital


Crews responded to a hazardous material situation near Five Points in Fresno County late Monday morning.

According to a statement by the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office, 12 workers building a solar farm in the area of Mt. Whitney and Siskiyou Avenues were exposed to chemicals. According to the statement, a tractor operator spraying on a neighboring field got close to the workers, and wind blew the chemicals onto them.

According to officials, Cal Fire crews rinsed off the exposed workers, and they were taken to the hospital for further evaluation.
