The Hazardous Materials Team from the Alexandria Fire Department was dispatched to assist due to the presence of an 80 pound propane cylinder. Units worked for a little over an hour to bring the incident under control.

The propane cylinder didn't create any additional issues.

The express lanes were closed while the units worked to bring the incident under control and were eventually re-opened.
