According to THIS webpage, the residents near Valley Solvents need to be very worried.

Don't play this down, it's pretty serious..


"This is a very, very dangerous situation and it is a very large, massive piece of land that's on fire here," said Anita Foster, of the Red Cross - Chisholm Trail Chapter. "And so we just want to take care of all those fire department personnel and then just make sure that residents … especially those driving up and down roadways … are taking extreme caution."

More than 100 firefighters at the scene were instructed to stay back for their safety, according to NBC 5 reports.


They werent even fighting this fire.. they let it burn.

I'd be curious to see how many residents will be affected by the chemical release.. even if they cloud traveled up, an enviromental release of any kind (spill, leak, etc) of some of those chemicals listed on the above page could be devastating.

Its not all the uncommon to just let a fire bun out if there is not life being thretened by it at the time.
But I am worried for everyone else that will be breating in all the toxins and eating it when it gets into the food chain.

I do not think so. If it were indeed a very serious situation they would have residents evacuate the area and that has not been the case, all they have done is told them to stay inside.

Next to New Jersey, Texas may be the most combustible state in the Union. I wouldn't be surprised if someone is targeting BP because of those horrendously repulsive commercials they've been running for the last six months or so.

Totally agree there...plus the conspiracy of trying to get people to believe they're really Beyond Petroleum not British Petroleum. I think they want Americans to think its a domestic company.
