Crews have been hard at work cleaning the area of contaminants resulting from a New Year’s Day fire at Mid-West Fertilizer.

Chemical run-off from the fire-fighting efforts into the nearby Neosho River forced Humboldt and Chanute to temporarily close their water plants.

Doug King, environmental health and safety director at Mid-West Fertilizer, is in charge of the cleanup effort.
