Returning to Hollywood, there is breaking news coming out of Tustin tonight where the fire at the blimp hangar is reigniting. Firefighters have reported hot spots above the doors on the north hangar this afternoon. Both the Orange County Fire Authority and the Tustin Police are on scene monitoring the situation.
Earlier this week, officials declared a local state of emergency after the World War 2 era blimp hangar caught fire on Tuesday. The fire released dangerous toxins such as asbestos, lead, arsenic, and nickel into the air.
Residents are advised to stay away from the area if possible and keep their doors and windows closed as a precaution. Additionally, the Tustin Unified School District has announced that all campuses will be closed on Monday. In the meantime, the Tustin City Council has approved an agreement with the U.S. Navy to provide up to a million dollars in federal funds per year to residents living near the blimp hangar.
This money will be utilized to begin the cleanup process of the potentially toxic debris..
