    An entire city block in Dyker Heights was evacuated after some chemicals were found in the basement of a home.
    When a sanitation truck tried to haul the chemicals away, they caught fire. The fire department then called in the hazardous materials team.
    Air samples have now shown the air is safe and residents have been allowed to return home.
