The ITC plant fire, located 15 miles North of Dracul, that lasted for three days, was finally extinguished Wednesday morning. Citizens, along with Company and City officials are glad this battle has come to an end.

The fire started Sunday Morning around 10AM CT, after a bad manifold was determined to be the cause of the fire. Investigators are working to determine whether or not the company itself was responsible for this disaster. No injuries or deaths have been linked to the emergency at this time.

The community still has its concerns, after several hazardous chemicals were released into the atmosphere for three straight days. City and Company officials still deny there to be any risk to health.
