Santa Clara: Chemical foam spills from hangar at airport

The Mercury News

Fluffy white foam filled a Santa Clara street Friday when a fire-suppression system at a privately-owned hangar at San Jose International Airport malfunctioned... San Francisco Baykeeper staff scientist Ian Wren expressed some concern about the substance getting into waterways and potentially poisoning wildlife, especially with rain expected this weekend.

“We’re glad there was a rapid response,” he said, “but we hope regulators and (Signature Flight Support) make sure this does not happen again.”
