According to ABC7 and the San Jose Fire Department, something malfunctioned in a new hanger at San Jose airport, leading to a flood of foam coming out of the hangar’s vents around 1:30 this afternoon. It’s now ebbing down the street and is five feet deep in some areas.
The foam is a fire retardant that can cause skin irritation. The fire department is warning people not to go into the foam because it’s a chemical known to cause cancer.

The foam appears to be coming from a building on Martin Avenue. As of 12:30 p.m., the foam was deeper than 5′ in some areas.
A KTVU crew is told the foam appears to be some type of fire retardant. A witness told KTVU the fire system was being tested – when the foam was released.
The foam is blocking several businesses and has completely covered some cars in the area.
Police are at the scene. There seems to be confusion about what to do next, and how to remove the massive amount of foam from the street.
