Nothing dangerous found in barrels along DeKalb road

DeKalb County firefighters were called to Ellenwood early Tuesday after a passerby spotted two barrels along the side of Moore Road.

As a precaution, a hazardous materials team was called to the area, near the intersection with Henrico Road, around 5 a.m., according to Capt. Eric Jackson. Investigators determined the barrels contained an industrial polymer that posed no risk, Jackson said.

The barrels were being transported to a landfill for disposal, Jackson said.
