Hazardous foam leak at Melb container yard

Hazardous foam has spilled from a shipping container at a storage yard in inner Melbourne.

MFB crews discovered the foam leaking from the container owned by a waste management company when they arrived at the Dynon Road property about 3.30am on Wednesday, a spokesman said.

Specialist hazardous material technicians are at the scene to remove the substance, which was later identified as Aqueous Film Forming Foam, and expect to remain on site for several hours.
