A chemical spill forced people from their homes in the Lower Valley, Thursday night.

Dozens of fire crews rushed to the 400 block of Borrett.

A man who recently rented the home says he didn't know what was inside two tanks but when he tried to move them, an unknown liquid spilled and began turning the concrete purple.

Firefighters evacuated the area and called in a Haz-mat crew.

They couldn't determine exactly what it was, only that it was a very strong acid.
