Monterey Park Children’s Court Forced to Evacuate

Monterey Park Children’s Court Forced to EvacuateThe second floor of the Edmund D. Edelman Children’s Court was evacuated Tuesday after staffers reported a hazardous material in the building.

Monterey Park firefighters were called to 201 Centre Plaza Drive at 9:30 a.m., and haz-mat teams from the sheriff’s department and Glendale and Burbank fire departments also responded, said Monterey Park fire Battalion Chief Jim Birrell.

He said the substance was cleaned up and the area declared safe to reoccupy, but authorities are still trying to identify the material.
