50 Fire Companies including Monroe County are on scene at Nicos Polymers,plastic factory off Bangor Road,broke out around 5:00a.m.It is out of control,by the looks of the black smoke going into the air not going to be a good thing.

My guess is that as usual they have a number on 'standby' to cover for the involved departments incase of other calls.

50 trucks would be hard to believe given 191 at that point.

I've been watching it all morning, saw it on the way in at around 0630-0700 and stopped at the fuel cell. Said it's a plastics recycling company that is on fire. From here at work it's about 3 miles [we are up high for this area] and the smoke goes from ground to the south west horizon, the sky down here is half blue in the east to gray/black to the west.
We won't be eating lunch on the patio today that's for sure, the smell is too strong and you can taste the air. I took the motorcycle today too.

The trucks really earning their keep are the tanker trucks bringing in water.

"Coll was planning to close the Plainfield Township plant and open a new on in South Whitehall Township."

One way to close a plant I guess.
