    I noticed billows smoke around 10 am, We heard a few explosions.

    It is remains pretty serious. One person unaccounted for.
    Nearby residents have been evacuated from their homes.

    I doubt sometimes whether a quiet and unagitated life would have suited me - yet I sometimes long for it.

    Just found out the factory is Leeson Polyurethanes Ltd.

    Had a warehouse not far from me go up a couple of weeks back and a few years ago an engine tuning business went up, I remember the whistling as various projectiles shot through the air, and afterwards the melted window frames of the closest homes. This is why I generally don't approve of mixing industrial units and homes.
    Of course it'll fit, you just need a bigger hammer.

    It's a huge fire. Someone sent me a picture of the smoke from the far side of Warwick.

    I should think there will be protests if they attempt to build anything that dangerous with hazardous chemicals near a residential area. I don't blame them.

    Just a question:- If they are looking for a missing member of staff, he may well have got caught in the inferno and been incinerated. How would they be able to trace any evidence? Not easily I should think.

    Bones will likely be present, Margaret, typically the thicker bones. I believe even crematoriums use bone crushers as the heat is insufficient to render them down properly. Years ago we used a contractor for maintaining our engine test beds, his main line of business was bone crushers in crematoriums.

    Oh I didn't realise that. God, what a job!

    I imagine there would be a lot of rubble to sift through.
