I was driving through the area and passed the scene as the first trucks were arriving. I was able to see the smoke from several miles away coming into Collinsville on 179. When I got to Dowd Avenue by the scene of the fire, the smoke was covering the road like a fog... it's quite scary to think there may have been toxic chemicals mixed in there, given that so many people were standing outside watching it amidst all that smoke that was everywhere. I was in my car with the windows down and i still got a good wiff of it.
