Chemical reactions continue to churn at site of Kearny chlorine plant fire, chief says

Today 5:20 PM (05/20/2019)
By Michaelangelo Conte | The Jersey Journal

Firefighters have still been unable to enter the Kearny chlorine plant that caught fire on Friday and led to the daylong closure of the Pulaski Skyway.

Gasses accumulating in the Alden Leeds chlorine facility as a result of ongoing chemical reactions caused two explosions late Sunday afternoon, Kearny Fire Department Chief Steve Dyl said Monday afternoon.

Is there a phone alert that we can sign up for - which doesn't go off everytime there's a custody dispute or a false child abduction.

Chemical plant fire closes portion of Pulaski Skyway, residents asked to remain indoors

Updated 8:32 AM; Posted May 17, 11:23 PM


By Chris Sheldon | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com

A fire at a large chlorine plant in Kearny Friday night shut down a portion of the Pulaski Skyway in the area and prompted officials to warn residents to remain indoors because of the smoke and fumes the blaze created.

The plant, known as Alden Leads, is located on Jacobus Avenue, almost directly underneath the Pulaski Skyway.

Kearny residents were asked by local fire officials to stay indoors with their windows windows closed, because the smoke could cause “severe respiratory distress.”

Residents in nearby towns in northern New Jersey and as far as Staten Island, N.Y., were warned that they might see or smell smoke as a result of the fire. The Bayonne Office of Emergency Management and the city of Hoboken warned residents there to close their windows because of the smoke generated by the fire.

Newark Public Safety Director Anthony F. Ambrose said in a Facebook post shortly after midnight that the fire “may be sending fumes into parts of Newark” and that people in the area should keep their windows and doors shut and stay inside.


The Pulaski Skyway was closed in both directions between South Kearny and Broadway as of 12 a.m., News 12 New Jersey reported. Video from the scene showed that cars were stranded on the highway as the smoke caused severe visibility problems on the bridge.


Emergency responders were helping the drivers stuck on the highway to safety, according to ABC.

The fire was still not under control as of 12:20 a.m. Saturday morning.

It was unclear if anybody was injured in the blaze or how it started.

UPDATE: As of 7:15 a.m. Saturday, the Pulaski Skyway remains closed in both directions, and firefighters are still at the chemical company. It was not immediately known if the fire has been extinguished
