MAMOU, La. -

The Mamou Post Office is now open following a chemical spill Wednesday.

Four employees got sick from chemical fumes and were sent to a hospital for treatment, according to Gerry Reed, Dist. Fire Chief for Mamou.

Officials say about a quart of a termite insecticide leaked from a drop shipment package.

The fire department was able to clean the spill within 20 minutes, stated the chief. In addition to the fire department cleaning the spill, a crew was dispatched from Baton Rouge to inspect the air quality. The tests came back clear. 

No customers were injured from the incident, added Reed.
