BANGKOK (AP) — Chemicals at a burned-out factory burst back into flames briefly, sending more toxic black smoke into the air around the Thai capital. The new blaze highlighted the continuing health danger from an industrial accident that killed one person and injured dozens more. Putting out the first fire took more than 24 hours. Firefighters doused the site with water and foam to keep the highly flammable chemicals from reigniting, but flames broke out again and burned for about an hour Tuesday afternoon. The air quality and water in the area of the factory was being tested before authorities decide to narrow the evacuation zone to allow some residents to return home.
