Fire officials reported a hazardous materials response at the plant on Great Highway near Sloat Boulevard around 12:12 p.m. on Twitter and said the building had been evacuated.

San Francisco Public Utilities Commission spokesman Tyler Gamble said plant staff had contact the fire department after a chemical reaction occurred and initiated precautionary measures.

“The situation is contained at this time and we’re evaluating the cause of initial reaction,” Gamble said in a statement on Twitter.

No injuries have been reported and there is no threat to the public or the surrounding area, officials said. The cause of the reaction is under investigation.
