An unexpected explosion at the Sunrise Propane facility in Toronto, Canada, has left nearby residents in shock and at risk of mesothelioma.
The blast has caused extensive damage to some nearby homes, causing residents to evacuate after toxic levels of asbestos had been found in the neighborhood. The houses that were damaged released asbestos fibers into the air, putting anyone in the area at risk of ingesting or inhaling the dangerous substance.
Studies reveal that asbestos fibers can remain in the air for several weeks, making many Toronto residents weary of breathing the air. Some residents have returned to their homes, but are staying indoors to prevent the inhalation of the asbestos fibers.
