Another major industrial fire hit the working class Northern suburbs of Melbourne on April 6. It is the fourth in three years. 175 fire fighters were used to subdue the fire and 8 schools were shut down with some concern about what chemicals were actually in the smoke. Two workers were hospitalized. Residents are asking would this happen with so little consequence except to their health if it was in the South Eastern suburbs of the City.
