Strange fire closes Interstate 90 ramp in Austin
AUSTIN, Minn. – A mysterious smoldering bag has closed an interstate interchange.

The Austin Fire Department was called to Interstate 90 at 14th Street around 9:45 am Tuesday on a report of something burning in a ditch and giving off a foul odor. Firefighters were unable to put out the item that was on fire with any water or dry chemical extinguisher.

Firefighters were able to empty out the container and found gray powder inside a cloth bag about the size of a football.

Eastbound I-90 from 14th Street NW has been closed as authorities wait for a Civil Support Team to analyze the powder.

Austin police, the Minnesota State Patrol, MnDOT, and a state chemical assessment team have been on the scene.

Lithium batteries blamed for starting toxic Tacoma fire
Firefighters spent 12 hours putting out a large fire at a Tacoma scrapyard Monday.

Air quality in much of Tacoma briefly soured to unhealthy levels in the morning, and residents reported headaches, nausea and watering eyes.

Firefighters suspect that lithium-ion batteries deep inside a 50-foot-tall pile of scrap metal spontaneously combusted and caused the blaze.

Toxic smoke from the fire at Simon Metals led the Port of Tacoma to suspend its operations for the morning.

The Tacoma Fire Department advised people to stay indoors and avoid inhaling the fumes.

"It definitely has affected people throughout Tacoma,” Shadrach White, who runs a software company about three miles as the crow flies from Simon Metals, said.

“It was strange. I’d never smelled anything like it,” he said. “It had a chemical smell to it. The first word that came to mind was ‘toxic.’"

White said he felt sick to his stomach after being in the smoke for only a minute.

Royersford Chemical Warehouse Catches Fire Saturday Night
ROYERSFORD, PA — A chemical warehouse in Royersford caught fire on Saturday night, bringing first responders from around the area together to battle the blaze.

The incident was first reported at around 7:40 p.m. at Hectrio Specialty Chemical System, located on the 400 block of First Avenue.

Crews forced entry to the rear of the building, and used hand lines to battle the blaze, which was contained to a small area in the manufacturing part of the building, according to officials. Firefighters were on the scene containing the smokey fire for close to two hours.

Royersford Fire Department said that the sprinkler systems were very effective in controlling the blaze until crews arrived. That, along with the swift response from first responders, helped quell the "potentially hazardous" blaze.

Despite the bad smell reported by neighbors, the chemicals posed no danger to the public, officials said.

Blaze engulfs lab in biotech company, no one injured
Pune: A major fire gutted one of the three laboratories at a biotech company in Theur, about 28km from here, on Friday.
“It took over six hours to douse the blaze. About 40 firemen from the Pune fire brigade, seven fire tenders and water tankers were pressed into service for fire-fighting. No one sustained injuries in the fire,” Prashant Ranpise, chief fire officer of the Pune fire brigade, told TOI.
Ranpise said prima facie, short-circuit could have led to the fire. “We had deployed two fire tenders at the spot,” he added.
Ganesh Pinguwale, sub-inspector of the Lonikand police, said the company, Rise n’ Shine Biotech Private Ltd, deals in biotechnology, floriculture and horticulture. “The company has three laboratories where technicians work in three shifts. Around 8.30am on Friday, the technicians in the laboratory number 2 alerted the supervisor about a fire in one of the units,” the officer said.
He said before the supervisor could reach the laboratory number 2, all the 50 persons working there had come out. “Within seconds, fire broke out in the laboratory,” Pinguwale said, adding, “The supervisor and others tried to douse the fire by using fire extinguishers, but it had spread in the entire laboratory by then.”
