Volunteer Firefighters responded to an anhydrous ammonia leak at the Wilbur-Ellis facility in Colton Monday afternoon.
Crews from Whitman County Fire District 14 out of Colton-Uniontown were called to the leak shortly after 12:00. A hose on a 30,000 gallon anhydrous tank ruptured leaking the gas. Volunteers used water to contain the gas which turns the fertilizer into a liquid. There is no threat to the community of Colton. The McGregor Company responded to assist.
