The area of NW48th and West O Street remains shut down after a pesticide spill at that intersection.
Lincoln Fire and Rescue were called out to NW 48th and West O Street for a hazardous materials spill at around 7:45 a.m. Battalion Chief Eric Jones says there was a report of a 150 gallon tank that fell off the back of a semi spilling liquid onto the street.
