TOLLESON, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -

An ammonia leak has led to evacuations in Tolleson early Monday morning, according to Chief George Good with Tolleson fire.

Several crews were dispatched to Rousseau Farming for a hazmat situation just before 6:30 a.m.

Chief Good said they are evacuating 92nd Avenue to 95th Avenue on Harrison Street due to the winds.
