LAFARGEVILLE — A chemical spill in the hamlet Friday released no chemicals into the environment, according to officials from the Department of Environmental Conservation.

In a release from the department, officials were called around 3:22 p.m. Friday about a spill taking place at Crowley Foods, a division of HP Hood, LLC, Route 411.
