      Prince George’s County firefighters and hazmat crews are determining if there’s any danger after a dangerous chemical was spilled at a UPS facility in Laurel.

      Officials say a small fire was initially reported at the building on Swietzer Lane around 3 a.m. Monday, but quickly turned to a hazmat situation.

      At least one person came in direct contact with the substance, officials say.

      Hundreds of workers have been reportedly evacuated from the facility.
      Officials say a decontamination area has been set up in the parking lot.

      No further details were immediately available.
