    Barsol Solvents on fire.....

    It has been on TV13 news and just now Fox News started carrying it. Apparently they have/had I80 closed for a while. This building is north of I80 and Euclid I think and the TV coverage shows some very impressive flames. Air quality is being measured and evacuations could happen. Thank goodness the smoke is heading NE from what I can tell but this ain't good...

    South of I-80, north of Euclid.

    Roads closed from Merle Hay to the East mix master.

    I was on the way back to work from Ankeny to downtown a little after 1 pm and it looked pretty nasty over there. I could see the flames coming out of the top of the build from I-235.
