    George, Are you talking about the fire at the site where they store VX nerve gas? If so I saw something about it on the local news but they made it sound like it was no big deal.

    I'm unaware of any major fires involving a hazardous waste facilties in Northwest Indiana recently. I'm usally aware of any fires in the "region" and this one doesn't ring any bells, I'll make some inquires at the Lake County Departments for you. I seached the local papers and came up zero.

    O.K. This is the one I'm talking about. There was an incident there and they didn't make a big deal about it. We're talking about two seperate issues.

    Well to start with VX is NOT a gas it is a liquid.
