The two MCFRS Hazmat crews were dispatched to the Naval Surface Warfare Center in the 9500 block of MacArthur Boulevard at 11:27 a.m., according to Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Service spokeswoman Beth Anne Nesselt.
They cleared the scene by 1:15 p.m., she said in an email.
Navy spokesman Ed Zeigler said the building is a research center. There were no injuries from the spill, he said.
The facility’s mission includes research, development, testing and evaluation, analysis, acquisition support, in-service engineering, and logistics and integration of surface and undersea vehicles and associated systems, according to the Naval Surface Warfare Center’s website.
