ANSONIA, Conn. (May 24)—Environmental and safety issues resulting from a fire at Latex Foam Products L.L.C. have been resolved and all hazardous materials have been removed, the company said. The Department of Environmental Protection has determined that there is no foreseeable danger to either Ansonia or the nearby Naugatuck River, according to the firm. The department and Clean Harbors, a private environmental company retained by Latex Foam Products to handle the environmental clean-up, have concluded their on-site operation and the damaged building will be prepared for demolition. The blaze virtually destroyed Latex Foam Products' 284,000-sq.-ft. factory May 14. The company made latex mattress cores, pillows and cosmetic sponges at the plant.
