On September 16, 2013, a fire broke out in the old Convey Containers building on 1811 20th St. NE, Canton, Ohio. During the fire, sulfur dioxide was released causing the evacuation of hundreds of residence. Sulfur dioxide can cause damage to the following organs: lungs, upper respiratory tract, skin, and eyes.
Sulfur dioxide is also severely corrosive to the respiratory system
It is also severely corrosive to the skin and causes severe burns. Sulfur dioxide is also severely corrosive to the respiratory system. Sulfur dioxide is lethal in high enough doses. Not surprisingly several local and state agencies have been working together to get the situation under control.
