Hazmat crews have been called out to the scene of a chemical spill in northwest Harris County.

According to law enforcement, the spill happened around 3:15 this morning at the Aker BioMarine Manufacturing facility on Campbell Road near Clay Road.

Officials said the facility was using krill to make fish oil when a pump failed, causing a spill. That spill created a vapor cloud in the area.

Hazmat crews are conducting air quality tests, but they do not believe it poses a threat to the public.

There were only two employees inside the building when the spill happened. They were not hurt.
