The Bluegrass Chapter of the American Red Cross sent one of their own workers to Charleston, West Virginia Friday morning to help with the city's chemical spill.

The Kanawha County Fire Department reported a 48,000-gallon storage tank had leaked 4-methylcyclohexane methanol into the Elk River, which is harmful if swallowed.

The river is the water source for around 300,000 people in the area.
