Fire crews investigate possible hazmat situation

SAN DIEGO — Barrels holding an unknown substance were found on a Rancho Penasquitos sidewalk Sunday, said authorities.

The unidentified drums were found unattended around 9:30 a.m. on Kika Court near Mercy Road.

Hazmat  took samples from the drums but were unable to determine what substance was inside, San Diego Fire-Rescue spokesman Jose Ysea said.

Investigators left the scene, and a contractor was called in to remove and dispose of the material.
