Anhydrous ammonia leak contained in west Dickinson

DICKINSON, N.D. - An anhydrous ammonia leak at Baker Boy that shut down Highway 10 in west Dickinson has been contained, according to Stark County emergency personnel.

Highway 10 has reopened after being blocked off for a short time.

Stark County Director of Emergency Services Bill Fahlsing told The Press that the leak, which he said was detected sometime before 10 a.m. Monday morning, has been contained, though the county did send out a reverse 911 "shelter in place" message to residents immediately down wind from the Baker Boy complex.

"The Dickinson Rural Fire Department has advised that they have the leak under control," Fahlsing said. "I can't comment at this time about Baker Boy employees, but we have no reported injuries at this time."

Stark County Sheriff's Office and the Dickinson Ambulance also responded to the incident. Dickinson Police Department personnel temporarily had the entrance to Highway 10 west out of Dickinson blocked off just after 10 a.m.
