SANTA CLARA, CA (WSPA/CBS) – A fire-suppression foam test went awry near a California airport, filling nearby streets with foam, according to Santa Clara Police.
The thick white foam came from the Signature Flight Support building located next to the airport. Police say the company was testing its emergency fire suppression system and something went wrong.
Video shows the foam spilled out of both ends of the building and vents on the side of the building.
The foam was deep enough to cover cars on the street and almost bury stop signs.
People in the area stopped to take selfies with the foam and some even rode bicycles through the foam.
The company says the foam isn’t toxic and police said they planned to let the foam dissipate rather than using water to try to wash it away.
