Possible Causes of TCI Fire

The New York State Office of Fire Prevention and Control has released its study of the origins of the fire last August at TCI. John Mason has the story in today's Register-Star: "State cites 2 possible causes of TCI fire."  It seems that, without the knowledge of town and county officials, TCI was leasing part of its warehouse to PSS--Power Substation Service--and the fire started in the area used by PSS. According to the report: "PSS processes transformer oils containing PCBs at a level higher then that which TCI is allowed to handle." Nice.

TCI is seeking to rebuild their facility in Ghent.
