After an assessment by the City of St. Louis Department of Health during a fire at 1849 Cass Avenue on July 12, 2017, the Department of Health took immediate action and contacted the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to conduct samplings on the property for toxic contamination from wind-blown building materials from the fire. “The health hazards and health concerns from the burned materials prompted us to make the request right away,” said Chantez Williams, Program Manager for the City of St. Louis Department of Health. An EPA On Scene Coordinator and a federal contractor are working with the City on this issue.
