VIDEO: An ammonia leak has led to evacuations in Tolleson early Monday morning, according to Chief George Good with Tolleson fire. Several crews were dispatched to Rousseau Farming for a hazmat situation just before 6:30 a.m. Chief Good said they are evacuating 92nd Avenue to 95th Avenue on Harrison Street due to the winds. A few people have complained of watery eyes but no one has been treated or transported, said Good. Firefighters are still looking for the source and do not know whether it involves businesses or homes at this time.
