ADRIAN, MI (WTOL) - Public safety officials are evacuating a half-mile radius around Anderson Development in Adrian, Michigan.

Officials say this is due to a hazardous material situation.

The Anderson Development is located at 1450 East Michigan Street.

Lenawee County Sheriff Jack Welsh says there has been no release of chemicals from the site and that workers at Anderson Development have contained the situation at the plant.

Sheriff Welsh says the incident involved a tank truck carrying hazardous chemicals on the Anderson Development property. He says there is no chemical leak at the scene and the evacuation is just a precaution.

Sheriff Welsh also says Haz-Mat crews from Anderson area neutralizing the chemical in the tank truck.

He says no shelter has been established for people who live in that part of town, as it's a part of Adrian that's home to many industrial facilities, but sparsely populated.

Welsh says a couple of school bus routes had to be changed because of the evacuation.

Those on site are waiting for the Adrian Fire Department to give the all-clear.
