Great smoke plumes rise over Haifa; fears of hazardous waste burning.
A large fire erupted near a metal processing plant south of Acre Saturday. Firefighters were at the scene.

The fire at the "Hod Pladot" plant began around 11 a.m. at the plant’s waste collection area, and it was believed that hazardous materials were being burned by the flames.

Great plumes of smoke rose above the Haifa Bay and residents in nearby communities were requested to remain indoors for fear of inhaling the dangerous substances. Route 4 was also closed intermittently due to the smoke.
