  1. Ugh, that is ugly smoke.

  2. Oh great
    Who knows what is being released
    into the atmosphere?
    Nothing like the smell of burning plastic
    to brighten your day. I hope no one
    is/was hurt!

  3. I hope there are good jobs for the people who can’t work there now.

    As he maneuvered his way around the basement of a smoky, plastic-filled building, Lt. Larry Groff said he couldn’t see his own hand in front of him.
    It took Groff 25 seconds to leave the basement, but it took far longer for him and every fire department in Wayne County on Friday to contain a blaze at the Primex Plastic storage facility at 533 N. 15th St. that resulted in damages in the multimillion-dollar range.
