Details of the incident were relayed on the Umatilla County Fire District's Facebook page:

At 6:46 a.m. on Wednesday, October 6, 2021, Umatilla County Fire District #1 responded to a hazmat call along I-84 on exit 180. Upon arrival, our units found a semi-truck and trailer leaking hydrochloric acid from the trailer. Our hazmat team and fire crews identified the substance and stopped the leak until clean-up crews could arrive. UCFD1 cleared the scene at 9:20 a.m. after turning the incident over to the Oregon Department of Transportation. No injuries were reported.

That's good news that no one was injured in the accident. Oregon DOT will continue to clean up the spill and the roads have been cleared.

I know a lot of folks growing up in the Tri-Cities remember chili and cinnamon rolls and I know folks in the Yakima Valley love their Cheeze Zombies with Tomato Soup.
