Crews from Temple, Hicks Gate and Patchway fire stations were mobilised to reports of a chemical leak at a commercial property.
Crews in gas tight suits have been working to identify the cause of the leak with partner agencies including the environment agency. Firefighters are formulating a plan to isolate the leak and also ventilate the building.
Around 40 people have been evacuated from the building and two people have self-presented at a nearby walk in centre.
Police are also in attendance and once the chemical had been identified, the site was handed to a chemical recovery company.
