The West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection today posted the following data regarding the IEI fire and the inventory of harmful substances contained in the building. (See the link below.) The agency did not indicate that the documents were sufficient to satisfy the demand that the owner of IEI turn over a detailed inventory of the materials that burned in the fire.
Community members who found themselves in the path of the plume have reported health problems associated with the fumes and smoke. So far, authorities have been unable to name or explain the potential hazards unleashed by the fire. Experts hope that the information posted today may provide some answers for the impacted population.
