Ammonia leak in Harrington contained

HARRINGTON, Wash. (AP) - The Washington State Patrol says an ammonia leak that prompted a shutdown of a portion of the Eastern Washington town of Harrington has been contained.

The patrol says all highways in the area are now open.

The Lincoln County Sheriff's Office says around 20,000 gallons of the ammonia leaked from a railroad car on Friday afternoon.

The Harrington School District was placed in lockdown as a precaution, and State Route 28 is temporarily shut down from Harrington to Davenport.
