Agglomerated Soot from an Industrial Fire
This is a piece of agglomerated soot from an large plumbing warehouse fire. The glass fiber in the lower left of this
image is still coated with some of the charred polymer of what had been a glass fiber reinforced plastic structure. This fire started in an area
where fiberglass (glass fiber/resin composite) bathtubs were stored. This was from an environmental
tapelift collected in a home a few hundred meters (a little over 200 yards) away from the fire.
