Just after 3am on 2/27/2016, Aetna along with the New Castle County HAZMAT/DECON Team, DNREC, and New Castle County Paramedics responded to the 400 block of Bellevue Road for a HAZMAT incident. Responding crews found an anhydrous ammonia leak inside a building which was safely mitigated by DNREC resulting in no hazard to the community.  There were no injuries and crews operated for two hours.
