Hazmat crews were called out to a neighborhood on Thursday after several calls came in about a unknown chemical smell in the area.
The incident happened between Camellia and Daffodil Avenue in McAllen and police with fire crews blocked off the neighborhood for about 15 minutes trying to determine where the odor was coming from. It turns out it was coming from a soccer field off of Daffodil Avenue as city workers were using a weed killer spray on the field.
