Jefferson County -

Fire departments and emergency crews responded to a tractor trailer nitrogen leak Wednesday afternoon outside of the Village of Cadiz, Ohio. 

A Key Company tractor trailer was traveling on US 250 westbound when a pressure relief valve on top of the tank began leaking nitrogen. 

Harrison County and Cadiz fire departments evacuated and shut down a portion of US 250 around 1:15 p.m. because of the hazardous material. 

After crews from Key Company relieved the pressure of the valve and the nitrogen was cleaned up, emergency crews opened the road back up around 2 p.m.
