A tank truck leaking white liquid latex prompted a response from emergency personnel 2 p.m. Tuesday.

It turns out the truck started leaking from the top after it lost the cap from the tank, according to East Fork Battalion Chief Troy Valenzuela

East Fork firefighters, Douglas County deputies, and NHP troopers responded.

The latex is water-based and nonhazardous, so the truck was escorted north of town to await repair.
