horrible fire near Atlanta!!

There was a major explosion in a city about 20 miles of Atlanta, Conyers. Are all of the Interferencers from the Atlanta area OK? I spent all day studying the Turkish Silk Road culture for a medieval re-enactment faire next week and only just now heard about the incident by way of e-mails. This is scary!

I am fine. The fire is south of Atlanta and started early this morning. It was caused by a chemical plant fire. The authorities have evacuated all the citizens who are in harms way. The fire is expected to burn for several days before it is over.

I am surprised this made the internationl news. All I know is that I am one happy person since I don't live on the southside of Atlanta because Traffic SUCKS! I think they had to shut a portion of the interstate down because of the massive, and billowing chemical cloud that this fire caused.

It was a swimming pool chemical factory, so that can't be good for breathing the air

I have some medieval re-enactment buddies in Conyers and the surrounding areas, and everyone is OK. They're mainly freaked out.
