(KMOV) -- Hazmat crews cleaned up a chemical spill Saturday and Sunday in Dupo, Illinois after a container car reportedly was found leaking a dangerous chemical.

City officials say Hydrogen Fluoride leak was detected and through an environmental scan and Hazmat crews were called to the scene. 

Hazmat crews say the chemical was in a concentrated liquid form that could be absorbed through the skin, but luckily the vapors did not reach nearby residents.

An evacuation was not issued during the incident.
