PASSAIC, N.J. — A fire at a New Jersey chemical plant with flames and smoke visible for miles in the night sky Friday has spread to multiple buildings, threatening to reach the plant’s chemical storage area, authorities said.
Passaic Mayor Hector Lora told Northjersey.com that popping and small explosions within the fire at Qualco Inc. indicated it was getting closer to the chemicals, as residents were being evacuated from surrounding areas and told to keep their windows closed in at least one nearby municipality.

It is currently 23 degrees in Passaic.
Who has their windows open?
Have you ever driven the New Jersey Turnpike? New Jersey is a chemical plant
You’re talking all northern NJ, but not central or south. North NJ is just New York.
Years ago a chemical plant near me had an incident where a chemical vat got to hot to the point where it caused it to increase in heat by itself until it boiled over. I lived about a mile away as the bird files and the entire street was covered in a thick white smoke. We were told it was not a dangerous chemical but the smell indicated it was a very volatile substance
looks close to residential areas

Hope for their sakes the wind doesnt shift!
Even an N95 mask offers no protection.
Plenty of chemical plants in central NJ
Standing so close to a chemical plant fire.
There have been a couple in WNY and when those chemical plants go, they go big. It’s not a block party or the fourth of July fireworks, for crying out loud.
I always stand around chemical fires in sub freezing temps taking cell phone videos. P.S. Does anyone speak english in Passaic?

No, nadie habla ingles...
They traffick foreigners there to prevent “Detroitification” (abandonment to nature).
