The fire at Aaron and Moshe Rubashkin's abandoned Allentown mill (see the post immediately below this) involved undocumented hazardous waste. According to WFMZ-TV, three people were hospitalized and the immediate neighborhood around the mill was evacuated while the fire burned. It seems that the Rabbis Rubashkin, among their other sins, failed to properly dispose their industrial hazardous waste. But this is nothing new for the Rubashkins.
