One firefighter suffered chest pains and another had difficulty breathing during the fire at General Polymer Inc., according to The Providence Journal (http://bit.ly/11Zny6z).
The firefighters are believed to have been exposed to toluene, a colorless liquid used in making paints and paint thinners. Other firefighters on scene were decontaminated as a precaution.
The fire went to five alarms in the 75,000-square-foot custom paint company when a vat ignited.
