A 50-gallon barrel of chlorine spilled on southbound Interstate 35W near 11th Avenue South in Minneapolis Tuesday morning, according to the Minneapolis Fire Department. 

The fire department says the spill has been contained, but some of the chlorine did enter the sewer system before crews arrived. The remaining product is being diluted.

The sewer is now diked off and some lanes of the freeway are blocked while crews clean up.
