UPDATE (12:18 p.m.) – San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s officials say deputies serving an eviction notice at a property along the 1100 block of Willow Road in Nipomo Wednesday morning discovered a honey oil lab.
The discovery prompted the sheriff’s office to request hazmat crews.
One person has been detained.
(11:39 a.m.) – Hazmat crews were called to Nipomo Wednesday morning to reports of a “concerning substance.”
CAL FIRE SLO responded to the 1100 block of Willow Road shortly before 10:45 a.m.
Spokesperson Chris Elms says it appears the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office responded to a call at the location earlier in the day and requested medical aid.
At some point, someone discovered a substance in an outbuilding that was concerning and requested a hazmat assessment, Elms said.
As of 11:30 a.m., it was not known what the substance was or why it was a concern.
Willow Road is open as the property is isolated, Elms said. There are no evacuations.
