The cleanup continues Thursday morning after an acid leak in a truck terminal in west suburban Hillside.

Emergency efforts began just before midnight Wednesday at the building on Mannheim Road. A Level III HazMat alarm was sounded. Acid leaking from a barrel in the trucking facility caused the problem.

No injuries were reported, and no evacuations were necessary.
