New Interactive Map Shows Testing Following Fire

(Portland, OR) -- Residents near the fire that destroyed a vacant K-Mart warehouse in Northeast Portland are worried about asbestos contamination. Now, the EPA and Oregon DEQ have produced an interactive map that shows the results of testing. So far, no asbestos has been detected in any of the 11 debris samples and 16 air samples. More testing is underway on seven debris samples and 16 air samples. Those are called activity-based air samples. They're taken while walking, mowing lawns, raking leaves, and digging holes. They'll be added to the map when they come in.
