News reports a fire at a parts supply store destroyed the warehouse, including hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of classic cars. Flames erupted in the warehouse, and emitted dangerous toxins across the area. The company housed in the warehouse sells auto parts and paint, which initially caused authorities concern about the toxins and flammable material.
Those who have COPD, cancer or asthma are urged to stay away from the area, as there is still cause for concern due to the toxins released.
Though the cause of the fire is still not known, this incident is a reminder to be aware of natural gases and heating sources in your home, especially with the dropping temperatures.
