LAFD Press Release

Hazardous Materials Investigation 09/18/2022 INC#1183 - Hazardous Materials Investigation; INC#1183; 05:29PM; 920 Bloom Wk; MAP: https://bit.ly/3LlJczT; #UniversityPark; USC staff has requested LAFD to investigate a pungent odor and unidentified liquid leak within a room on the first floor of the seven-story Seaver Science Center, which was calmly evacuated (unknown number of persons) prior to LAFD arrival. There were no alarm activations on LAFD arrival, and NO reports of any persons experiencing illness or injury. LAFD crews are working with USC Dept of Public Safety to assure that all persons in that multi-floor building have safely evacuated to the EAST. An LAFD HazMat team is now meeting with on-site USC scientists to methodically examine the scope and determine the nature of the odor and leak, and develop a strategic mitigation plan. At this time, there is no escalating or off-site hazard.; FS 15; Batt 13; South Bureau; Council District 9; BC13 E21 E215 E221 E294 E94 EM11 HM94 RA15 RA21 RA246 SQ21 T15 T21 T94; CH7; 13 15; Brian Humphrey 09-18-22 06:08 PM

Update Hazardous Materials Investigation 09/18/2022 INC#1183 - Update Hazardous Materials Investigation; INC#1183; 07:15PM; 920 Bloom Wk; MAP: https://bit.ly/3LlJczT; #UniversityPark; Working closely with USC staff, an LAFD HazMat team entered the first floor laboratory at the on-campus Seaver Science Center to determine the unidentified fluid that had covered nearly 40 square-feet of laboratory floor, was largely the result of a "water wash" activation, and represented no danger. An environmental survey of the area noted no other hazards. The source and nature of the pungent odor noted only prior to LAFD arrival was not determined. No persons complained of illness or injury. The scene will soon be returned to the control of USC staff for cleanup.
