More on the Danvers dispute

The Salem News updates the dispute between Danvers Fire Chief James Tutko and the federal Chemical Safety Board, but doesn’t really add anything new.

It makes no sense whatsoever.

    EB3 here,I can’t wait for the Fed’s report. Veiled allegations and innuendo (or worse) of code violations that can not be proven because they were not allowed timely access to the site. Implications that state and local officials corrupted the scene with their investigations.The report may conclude “Perhaps this would not have happened if the code violations had been discovered by local fire inspectors during their routine inspections prior to the accident.

    EB3, I think you’ve hit the nail on the head… so, what have the local FDs been doing with all of that Homeland Security money??? Doubtlessly still complaining that they’re understaffed and unable to keep tabs on potentially hazardous materials under their noses. When was that place last inspected?

    Sure looks like a good old fashioned coverup to me. Chemical plants in a modern industrialized nation are not just supposed to blow up like that. Criminal negligence, at the very least.

    Notice that the governor has asked for federal disaster relief money. Shouldn’t that be conditioned on the federal investigators being allowed access to the site?
