About 25 containers of pesticides and other materials were discovered Wednesday morning abandoned in the area of Helm and West Holland avenues, Clovis Fire Department spokesman Chad Fitzgerald said.
The fire department's hazardous materials team was called about 10:40 a.m. and quickly sealed off the area to evaluate the contents of the containers. Workers found that many containers were holding a pesticide while others were taken for further evaluation, Fitzgerald said.
No one was harmed from the hazards and the area will receive a thorough clean-up from a county certified hazardous waste hauler, Fitzgerald said.
