Drivers have been warned to avoid State Highway One near Lake Karapiro as emergency services keep battling to clean up a chemical spill.

A trailer containing a cocktail of chemicals rolled around 11.30pm last night.

Waikato area fire commander Roy Breeze said firefighters cordoned off dangerous parts of the road.

He said the far-reaching chemical smell had dissipated, so it was safe for residents to go outside.
