BRISTOL, VA - Bristol, Virginia Fire Department hazmat crews are at the shopping center across from the new Food City on Euclid Ave.
An area in the parking lot has been closed off. The crews are trying to contain water runoff from a building's roof that was painted on Thursday.
Fire officials say the paint is mixing with the rain and going into the storm drains. The crews are trying to prevent that from happening.
They tell News 5 they have prevented the material from getting into the creek located behind the building. State emergency management is also on scene to help with the investigation.
