COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) - The Colorado Springs Fire Department's Hazardous Materials team is responding to a potentially hazardous chemical at a home south of the downtown area.

Crews were called to a home near S. Cascade Ave. and Dorchester Dr. That's near Ivywild Park.

The fire department tells KRDO that officials were in the process of evicting someone from the residence when they discovered the potentially hazardous chemical. At this time the fire department wouldn't elaborate on what that chemical is but they noted that in its current form it is not dangerous but has the potential to be in another form. However, crews still ask that people stay away from the area.
