Gone With The Wind: California Had to Breathe Human Remains and Formalin
SAN DIEGO COUNTY, CALIFORNIA – May 26, 2018
An accident at a San Diego County crematorium sent clouds of smoke containing human remains into the air.
The data are presented 12:15 p.m by the Cortez Family Crematorium in National City.
"The oven door failed to close while the furnace was in use. This sent heavy smoke out of the chimney as well as the open doors of the building" said National City Fire Captain Brian Krebs.
There were human remains in the smoke, which activated the building's fire extinguisher, creating a toxic smell.
It moved to National City Boulevard and Broadway toward a supermarket and shopping center. It stayed continued for at least half an hour.
The possible health impact of inhaling the smoke is unclear. Brian Krebs said he has informed out to San Diego County health officials about the incident.
