Fire at Metal Factory Just 70 Miles from East Palestine

Authorities are on scene at an Oakwood Village, Ohio metal factory Monday afternoon, FOX 8 reports.

Oakwood Village is just over an hour by car from East Palestine, the site where the toxic chemical vinyl chloride was burned and released into the environment after a train carrying it derailed.

Following an unknown incident in Oakwood Village on Monday, crews were sent to the 22500 block on Alexander Road around 2:30 p.m. where I. Schumann & Co., which produces copper alloys, is located, according to FOX 8.

The official address of the building is in Bedford, but it is considered Oakwood Village.

Helicopter footage showed a fire and a large plume of smoke coming from the building.
