CIMCO fire aftermath

Posted by wlpo on July 29, 2012

A fire at CIMCO recycling on Ottawa’s West Side last week…will require meticulous and long work by the State Fire Marshall. Andy Bacidore is a Fire investigator and LaSalle Fire Chief. The longer a fire burns, says Bacidore, the more evidence gets burned. Also, the longer a fire burns the more unsafe a structure becomes. The State Fire Marshall will be looking for the point where the fire started, says Bacidore. Much of the time Wednesday was spent by firefighters in a fourth floor room containing plastics. Bacidore said such an investigation could take weeks….even months to determine a cause…and sometimes it goes undetermined.
