Fire and Emergency crews responded to reports of a chemical spill at the Port of Napier, Thursday morning.
At around 9.55am they'd responded to a HAZMAT incident that involved a chemical spilling from a container.
Seven fire truck units were in attendance at the scene.
Crews were focused on containing the chemical and working on stopping it from seeping into waterway systems.
The Port's Health and Safety and Environmental teams worked to monitor the situation.
A chemical called styrene monomer was believed to be in the containers — where it later leaked after being unloaded from a vessel.
Further investigation is underway to find the cause of the spill and how it happened.
