In Torrington, Connecticut, a factory fire has led to some concern about the spread of asbestos. The fire burned at the Smurfit-Stone Container Corporation factory where a large amount of asbestos was stored.
The blaze became so large that area residents needed to be evacuated and vinyl siding on nearby houses melted. Because of this, residents are worried that the asbestos could have been released into the air. However, the state Department of Environmental Protection says there is little danger.
