More than 100 gallons of non-toxic drilling fluid spilled in a Canyon Country road on Tuesday, prompting a cleanup response from the Los Angeles County Fire Department. 

Firefighters responded to a hazardous materials call at around 3:15 p.m. on the 29500 block of Sand Canyon Road, near Sierra Highway, according to Fire Department spokeswoman Leslie Lua. 

“We were responding to a report of about 100 gallons of material that was spilled and there was a report of a static issue as a result of the spill,” she said. 

Units on the scene concluded that an estimated 100 to 200 gallons of Super Gel X, a non-toxic drilling fluid, was spilled. 

“There were no threats to properties and no threat to drainages,” said Lua, adding that no injuries or collisions were reported.
