Deja Vu

Oh, no. Not again:

Explosion Reported At Apex EQ Plant
No Plans To Close Area Schools

APEX, N.C. -- Apex authorities have received multiple reports of an explosion at the site of the Environmental Quality Industrial Services, which caught fire nearly two weeks ago.

A white plume of smoke could be seen above the remains of the facility. There were also reports of a pungent odor in the air.

Apex Police Capt. Ann Stephens told WRAL that the explosion was a small fire in a 55-gallon barrel that cleanup crews were working with, but that the fire had been contained.

"All indications are that it will be localized to that one drum of material," Apex Mayor Keith Weatherly said.

OK, looks like no big deal.

That's a good thing. Could have been bad with the magnesium, or so I heard.
