Preliminary tests showed a low level of toluene, a solvent, but no significant dangers. Runoff from water used by fire fighters left a purple sheen on the nearby river, and water tests were being conducted. Utilities were out across the neighborhood surrounding the plant, and town officials canceled school for the day. Some residents who tried to drive out found their cars were stuck because their garage doors had been blown off the rails.
