FILLMORE, Calif. -

A chemical spill is being blamed on faulty equipment.

A company trying to deliver hydrochloric acid to Fillmore's city pool around noon Thursday had trouble with a pallet jack used to take it off their truck.

About 100 gallons of acid flowed into a storm drain.

The rest of the spill was contained.

Fillmore High School had to be secured while cleanup crews went to work.

A company worker and a city workers were treated for minor injuries.
