How dare "local, state, and federal agencies" interfere with the free market? If that company wants to keep dangerously unstable chemicals in our neighborhood, they should have that right. Just another example of big government interference. . .
And if you believe that smoke was "non-toxic," I have a set of West Desert pumps to sell you...

Trigonox is a peroxide. It consists of hydrogen, carbon and oxygen. No chlorine, no fluorine, phosphorus. As hydrocarbons go, the various Trigonox chemicals contain a lot of hydrogen so they should burn more cleanly than things like paper or wood. It should burn relatively clean so the smoke is probably less toxic than wood smoke or cigarette smoke.

Have you ever thought about the toxic soup that gets in the air when there is a forest fire?

I cannot tell you how much respect I have for firefighters who have to deal with these situations.
