|Ace||The plant did alot of recycling of waste. Different motor oils, paints, etc. SO they just dont burn it. Much of what they do is eliminate the contamination by possibly reusing what they can recycle. All I know is the stuff burning last night definately did not help the quality of air in that area. Pretty amazing they shut down the Ford Truck assembly plant in that area, last night and this mornings shift. Not sure if they were back running in afternoon or not. Sucks and I'll be seeing the effects in the production numbers in my forecast.|

|R1up0n1||Gas Mannnnnn !...................... did you start this fire??????|

I was thinking the same thing! The fire departments, last night, decided to evacuate people and let it burn.

|bumblebee||Most companies dispose of hazardous waste by incinerating it...here they get to dispose of it, collect some insurance money, and let the insurance company pay someone to clean up the mess...looks like a win, win for them|

Here are some of my supervisors pics...

This hits close to home for my company cause we have mutliple pipelines surrounding that area. While we are not directly involved my Area Supervisor has been in close contact with the verious emergency crews. It has been a big deal to the area. My company's (underground petroleom pipelines) main station is about 2 blocks from this fire. We have pipelines running parrell to the railroad tracks show in some the below pics. All of that stations workers for my company had to report to a different facility other than the operator and supervisor that had to use environmental breathing units.
We had to be called out to shut down those pipelines and isolate them in case the fires got out of control. Workers near the area said that the explosions were like nothing they've seen before... even when comparing them to explosions in vietnam.
The facility better known as EQ is a environmental company that cleans up other peoples messes and then obviously stores those problems here. Which is what you now see on fire...
The response from the various emergency agencies and other utlities in the area was reported to be supurb. It involved many fire departments including Detroit Metro Airport (for their fuel fighting capabilities) and the Dept of Homeland Secrurity.
