Inspectors, HAZMAT crew check into chemicals in South Toledo building


The eastbound lanes of Broadway Avenue, near South Avenue, are closed while officials execute a search warrant at a former medical research facility.

Toledo-Lucas County Health Department officials say there is no threat to public health and no evacuations have been made.

Health Department officials said health inspectors were inside the building looking around after Toledo’s Neighborhoods Department reportedly received complaints from the community. During the inspection, chemicals were found inside.

The health department, which has the lead on the operation, obtained a search warrant to go into the facility this morning.

The Toledo Fire Department’s HAZMAT unit was called to the scene to assist with the warrant.
