Chemical explosion outside Pittsburgh injures at least 4

Chemical Explosion Alert

Pittsburgh firefighters are battling an industrial fire at a chemical plant in Leetsdale, Pennsylvania. About 75 nearby homes have been evacuated due to inhalation risks.
 
Three workers and one firefighter have been injured by the blaze, local media report. The five-alarm fire broke out at the Weatherford Engineered Chemistry, an oil and gas company located on Leetsdale Industrial Drive.
 
Local officials say that two of the chemicals involved in the fire, ammonium persulfate and sodium chlorite, are inhalation hazards. As a precaution, all residents from Washington Road in Leetsdale have been evacuated to the Quaker Valley High School gum, according to KDKA.
 
Ambridge, Aliquippa and Hopewell Elementary Schools are keeping the students inside due to the heavy smoke, which even registered on the weather radars.
 
Leetsdale is a community of 1,200 on the north bank of the Ohio River, just northwest of Pittsburgh and due north of the city’s international airport.
 
The smoke cloud is currently headed up the river towards Ambridge and Aliquippa. If the wind changes direction, however, the smoke could interfere with airport operations.
 
One worker was hospitalized with chemical burns, while two others complained of chest pains, local officials told reporters an afternoon briefing. The injured firefighter also had chest pains.
 
Fire suppression operations are still ongoing, the authorities said. One building in the complex has been described as a “total loss,” while the other is heavily damaged. There are 43 businesses in the industrial complex affected by the fire.
 
While the cause of the blaze is still unknown, a fire alarm went off at 10:11 a.m., and a few minutes later one of the workers called in about an “explosion.”
 
The authorities are monitoring the Ohio River for any pollution from the fire.

4 new fires erupt in China’s Tianjin port disaster area

Soldiers from a People's Liberation Army chemical-defence unit work to neutralize sodium cyanide residue on the charred car bodes after the massive explosions at a port in northeastern China's Tianjin Municipality Thursday, Aug. 20, 2015. Officials have ordered nationwide checks on dangerous materials, and the Chinese military said it was inspecting storage measures for weapons, ammunition, and fuel as well as chemical, explosive and toxic materials, the official newspaper People's Liberation Army Daily reported.

Four new fires burned Friday within a disaster zone in China’s Tianjin port where massive warehouse explosions more than a week ago killed at least 114 people and contaminated the area with toxic chemicals.
 
The fires were spotted in a car parking lot and at three other locations within a 3-kilometer (1.8-mile) evacuated area, the official Xinhua News Agency said. It did not give more details, but the state-run Legal Evening News said firefighters put out the fire in the parking lot and that cleanup work in the disaster zone soon resumed.
 
Technicians have detected levels of cyanide as much as 356 times the safe level within the evacuated zone, although no abnormal contamination was found outside the zone, according to state media reports.
 
Workers in protective suits have started clearing wreckage, including charred car bodies and crumpled shipping containers, from the area of chemical warehouses that exploded Aug. 12. Xinhua said excavating equipment was being used to clear the site, and trucks were carrying out debris.
 
Officials have ordered nationwide checks on dangerous materials. Driving home the importance of such efforts, President Xi Jinping and other top leaders gathered in Beijing to hear a report on progress in investigating the disaster.
 
“Lately, in some places there have been major industrial safety accidents, one after the other, revealing yet again that problems in the area of industrial safety remain prominent and grave,” said a statement issued after the meeting Thursday.
 
Suspicions that official corruption contributed to the disaster were underlined in revelations Wednesday in a Xinhua article that the two silent owners used their connections with police, fire, port and workplace safety officials to secure approval for their company, Ruihai International Logistics, to operate warehouses for hazardous materials.
 
The Ruihai owners were able to secure permits to store toxic chemicals, including sodium cyanide, ammonium nitrate and potassium nitrate, even though their facility is located less than the required 1,000 meters (yards) from homes and public roads — a clear violation of state safety rules.
 
An Associated Press review of corporate documents found that the principal owner, Yu Xuewei, also was a board member of a state-owned company that operates hazmat warehouses that have similarly been accused of violating the 1,000-meter rule. The state-owned company’s parent, Sinochem, has disavowed any connection with Ruihai.
 
The explosions that rocked Tianjin were among China’s worst industrial accidents in recent years and the deadliest on record for the country’s firefighters, who accounted for 102 of the 179 total dead and missing. Authorities say almost 700 people remain hospitalized, while 30,000 people in and around the area have had their lives turned upside down by the disaster.
 
Premier Li Keqiang on Thursday said the investigation into the disaster must be thorough and cover every step taken by the company to obtain the license to store hazardous materials.
