By Katie Johnson

PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - A container of pesticide fell off a truck at the intersection of South County Road and Royal Palm Way, causing a chemical spill Tuesday afternoon.

Palm Beach County Fire Rescue is at the scene and said they are concerned that if the concentrated chemical gets into the sewer, it could cause environmental problems for fish and marine life.

Coast Guard and environmental officials have been notified of the situation.

As of 1 p.m., the intersection is closed to traffic.
