EAST PRICE HILL, OH (FOX19) -

Cincinnati firefighters responded Monday evening to Grand Avenue between Glenway Avenue and Lehman Road in East Price Hill where authorities found a gallon of muriatic acid (concrete cleaner) in a yard.

The Cincinnati Fire Department said the acid can be dangerous depending how it is mixed.

Authorities don't have a motive about why the acid was left in the yard. Cincinnati Police are not looking for any suspects.

Grand Avenue between Glenway Avenue and Lehman Road was closed while hazardous materials crews investigated.

Dispatch said a man found bottles of chemicals around 6 p.m. and that neighbors believed it could have been a methamphetamine lab.
