Easthampton Residents OK After Haz Mat Incident

Residents of an Easthampton apartment are back in their homes after a haz-mat situation.  The residents were evacuated Monday and part of Maple Street was blocked while police and firefighters investigated a suspicious liquid found in a basement.  The haz mat team determined the liquid was a corrosive acid a former tenant had used to extract gold from computer chips.  The residents were allowed to return after the chemical was removed.
