DRACUT (CBS) – Three workers were taken to the hospital on Tuesday after possibly being exposed to a hazardous chemical.

The workers at Conway Freight found the chemicals in a box in a truck parked outside in the shipping and receiving area.

Police say the three workers all reported an odor emitting from a liquid-based flammable material.

The workers, who showed no signs of illness, were decontaminated at the hospital.

Commercial Drive was shut down for a few hours while Hazmat crews responded.

Crews had contained the chemical.

The chemical had not yet been identified, but police believe it may be some kind of household cleaner.
