BELLEVUE, Ohio (AP) -- Authorities have lifted air warnings and are allowing people to return home in a northern Ohio town where a chemical fire shut schools.
The fire broke out Tuesday morning at a magnesium plant in Bellevue, about midway between Toledo and Cleveland.
Officials say the fire has been contained, but they still want people to stay out of the smoke coming from the fire.
Multiple media outlets are reporting that trailers holding magnesium caught fire at MagReTech Inc. The company refines and recycles magnesium and supplies magnesium alloys.
Police closed a couple roads around the site for much of the morning and asked people to stay inside with windows closed to avoid possible respiratory problems.
Environmental officials are monitoring the air in the area.
