Recycling Center Burning

As if the air quality wasn't bad enough, the Recycling Tire Center in my Town, is up in flames.

As you can see from the picture, the billowing smoke is up, up and away towards Maricopa. The winds blew the toxic smoke towards town this morning. The blaze started yesterday at around 2:30 p.m.

It is unknown what started the blaze, but fire officials state that it should be contained within the next two days. Two days?

Depending on how big the pile was, two days is really not unheard of. That being said, it really sucks that its blowing towards town. If I remember right, your daughter has breathing problems? I hope for everyones sake they get it under control soon.

Yes jesse, she has asthma! We have been keeping her indoors here at home as well as in school. Luckily they have a hazmat team out there that has pretty much squashed the flames.
