PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A hazmat crew in Portland was called in after a mysterious liquid spilled near the Portland International Airport.

Crews received a call just after 8:30 Wednesday night from a man who noticed a leak coming from the back of his tractor trailer.  He said he began to notice the leak near NE Glenn Widing Drive, just east of the Glenn Jackson Bridge.  The caller also said people nearby were experiencing symptoms.

Portland Fire and Rescue sent a crew down to investigate with the assistance of the Oregon State Hazardous Material team. Once on scene, the sample was tested and was not found to be hazardous. Crews determined that there was no need to evacuate any nearby buildings. 

None of the bystanders were found to have any symptoms related to the spill. Crews stayed on scene for several hours to clean up and prevent and further spillage.
