I just moved here a couple months ago and was wondering if any of the locals have an explanation as to what that smell is. I've only smelled it a few times, but it's always at night and it's around the walgreens and k-mart area of kingshighway. It's godawful and smells a bit like burning rubber and the dusty smell your heater makes the first time you've turned it on for the winter.

It's the plastic plant off of Independance. It's been that way for as long as I can remember. I think it's called Spartec

Yeah we're breathing those fumes too! Next time you get a whiff keep driving down independence until you get to west end. It's even worse!

It is a plastic plant over by Arena park i don't remember the name.
but i assume it is certain kind of chemical or plastic they use because it doesn't happen all of the time and its been that way for years I've been in cape for 40 years and it has always been that way.

Oh, well now I know. I'm sure it can't be healthy breathing in those fumes.

Depending on the Wind, on the Hill behind Wood and Houston BAnk and by BlockBuster they spray weed killer in the springtime and if you are driving by you nearly pass out from the fumes. They have 1 little guy out there spraying, no mask or anything. The worst use to be the Sheep out by WalMart on a damp night. Peeeeeeeyou.
