A mystery foam is flooding a city in California


Foam party or fire department malfunction?

It appears that its the latter what the residents of Santa Clara, California, experienced.

A malfunction at the San Jose airport in a new hangar caused a malfunction, which has resulted in a foam flooding on the streets. 

The foam stopped flowing out of the vents of the hangar at around 1:30 p.m. PST on Friday.

Jonathan Bloom, a reporter in San Francisco, posted the following video on Twitter.

It may look like a foam party, but it's far from it. The San Jose fire department warned residents not to go near the substance as it is a carcinogen. The fire retardant is known to cause an irritation to the skin.

It's non-toxic, but the substance could be a skin irritant to some.
