Chemical plant fire forces 700 to flee Idaho homes

The Indian reservation town of Fort Hall, where a chemical plant fire raged Tuesday, has been placed off limits for at least several days to the 700 residents forced to flee their homes. Idaho health officials Wednesday began testing for contamination. Meanwhile, in Elizabeth, N.J., officials Tuesday investigated another chemical fire at a waterfront dump that spilled hazardous chemicals into New York Harbor, spread noxious fumes over the nation's most densely populated area, and closed schools. At least 42 people were injured in the two fires.
