#AceNewsReport – Sept.26: Thick clouds of black smoke billowed from the fire, though officials said tests showed the smoke was not toxic: No-one was injured, and the cause of the blaze was not immediately clear………………The fire broke out at a storage facility owned by Lubrizol, a US specialty chemical manufacturer owned by the billionaire investor Warren Buffett…………………..”We’re still fighting the blaze, with the risk that pollution could spill into the Seine,” Pierre-André Durand, the prefect of Normandy, told reporters…………….Officials said firefighters were attempting to prevent the fire from spreading to other parts of the factory.

The Seine is one of France’s biggest rivers. From Rouen, the river flows through Paris to the south and connects to the English Channel in the north.

Firefighters were attempting to prevent the blaze spreading to other parts of the factory: The factory made the headlines in 2013 when a gas leak at the site spread a foul-smelling gas as far as Paris and parts of southern England: And in 2015, the site leaked 2,000 litres (440 gallons) of mineral oil into the sewer system of Rouen – a city of about 100,000 people.
