COLUMBIAVILLE - James Cunningham said he's not satisfied with the latest public safety tests saying that an industrial fire a few miles from his home, posed no safety risks.
Cunningham, who is confined to a wheelchair with cerebral palsy, still worries that smoke and ash got into his air conditioning and heating units.
His concerns, stemming from a massive fire at the transformer recycling plant TCI of New York, last Wednesday night, which sent plumes of smoke across the region.
Now state officials have released even more tests on PCBs and other hazardous chemicals saying there's no public health threat .
For the first time, company co-owner Brian Hemlock showed us what's left of the plant, collapsed from the tremendous heat of the fire. To address community concerns, the company opened a hotline, where residents can ask questions and make an insurance claim for clean up: 866-837-5021.
Today, James Cunningham put in his call to the hotline, saying it's good that the company is offering to help, but will wait to see if he'll get the peace of mind he needs.
