In Tustin, another fire has erupted in a location where a WWII hanger was previously destroyed. The fire, which started on Tuesday, was not fully extinguished and has now resurfaced, causing flames and dense smoke to be visible over a long distance.
The Orange County Fire Authority, represented by Michelle Fiser and Jory Ran, explains that this outcome was anticipated. Firefighters are currently allowing the fire to burn itself out. After discovering the presence of asbestos in the debris, which endangered firefighters, it was also discovered that the general public was at risk due to the presence of heavy metals like lead, arsenic, and nickel in the ash samples.
As a precautionary measure, Tus and Unified Schools have been canceled for Monday. Additionally, the Orange County Supervisors will hold a special meeting to address the emergency response to the fire, while the Tustin City Council has approved an agreement with the Navy, securing one million dollars in federal funds to initiate the debris cleanup process.
