Posted: Updated:

The company responsible for a chemical spill that has shut off water to about 100,000 homes in West Virginia received a threat this afternoon.

According to the Kanawha County Sheriff's Office, Freedom Industries received a call from a man saying he was "on his way to teach everyone there a lesson."

The KCSO sent several deputies to the business but no one has shown up to the scene.  The KCSO said they will keep deputies there to make certain investigators with other agencies can complete their jobs and to ensure the safety of Freedom Industries employees.
