EPA responded within 30 minutes to a warehouse fire. Oil-containing run-off was released with firefighting water to storm drains which lead to and discharge into the Des Plaines River. A sheen was observed on the Des Plaines River several miles downstream.  EPA and cleanup up crews are responding at the warehouse site and on the river to assess and conduct response actions.
