Fire companies and a Haz-Mat team handled an incident on October 30, 2013 in a one-story commercial building in the City of San Fernando. Employees at Envision Life CALIFA accidentally spilled a 55-gallon drum of 50% percent hydrogen peroxide solution, a strong oxidizer (a 3% solution is common for medical use). It slowly began reacting with the petroleum products in the carpet and approximately one hour into the incident it spontaneously combusted. A total of three city blocks were evacuated as a precaution.
