The chemical substance on Sheffield Road near the intersection of Dampier Road in Welshpool has been identified as mono isopropylamine, which is used in pesticide manufacturing.

People bounded by Sheffield Road, McDowell Street and Kurnall Road may be affected by smoke and fumes, the Department of Fire and Emergency Services warns.
