A chemical spill at a Times Square skyscraper caused quite a scare Sunday.

A HazMat team and the FDNY were called to the 53rd floor of the building at 1515 Broadway. As crews worked to clean the spill, Broadway was closed from West 42nd to West 48th street.

It reopened just after 11 p.m.

Officials say the mishap involved 10 gallons of spilled hydrogen peroxide.

No injuries were reported.
