    Firefighters, state respond to hazmat incident in Lynn - Item Live

    Firefighters and a state hazmat team cleaned up a potential chemical spill inside an 18-wheeler parked off of Boston Street Monday afternoon.

    A UPS driver was making a delivery just after noon when he noticed a chemical smell inside his truck’s trailer, according to Lynn Fire Chief Stephen Archer. The driver immediately closed the truck, parked it deep in a lot, away from the street and businesses, and called the fire department.

    “He did everything right,” Archer said of the driver. “He did what he was supposed to do.”

    What they don't know was he only moved and parked in that location because there was a Dunkin Donuts across the street.

    ...except you forgot the most important step:

    throw your body over the package so if it explodes it doesn't damage your truck and you won't get fired.
