Gas cylinders roll off truck in Halawa

Halawa cylinder spill

Traffic was a mess in the Halawa area Thursday night.

At about 5 p.m., a trucking company carrying gas cylinders lost its load on Halawa Valley Street.

The gas wasn’t a danger to the public, but crews had to be careful loading the cylinders back onto the truck.

“The danger is the cylinders could have a shearing of valve and cause the pressure to release, perhaps create a projectile,” Honolulu Fire Department Capt.  Terry Seelig said.

Halawa Valley Street was closed between the animal quarantine facility and cement plant.

The area has since been reopened.
