Letter: Fire at Sims Metal
November 14, 2013, 05:00 AM Letter

Editor,

The fire at Sims Metal in Redwood City on Sunday, Nov. 10 sent a thick plume of smoke over my neighborhood in unincorporated Redwood City. The odor was like burning plastic and the haze was dense over our neighborhood. We could not be outside since the smell was so bad. We did not get the “shelter-in-place” phone message for at least two to three hours after the fire started. By then the smoke was drifting thick and low over North Fair Oaks, Menlo Park and Atherton. Shame on Sims. That said, this incident is a reminder of just how foolish it is for Cargill to continue their plan for residential development on the salt ponds, just steps away from the Sims metal shredders.
