Agglomerated Soot, Tire Wear, and House Dust

This was from an environmental tapelift collected in a home a few hundred meters (a little over 200 yards) away from the fire and about a month after the fire. There is an agglomerated soot particle on the left, tire wear on the right, a skin flake at the bottom and the center is a particle of ash from an large plumbing warehouse fire.
