Partial results from medical tests of about 100 bus drivers and other workers following the June fire at the Larry Fricker Co. pesticide warehouse show that "everything (is) fine," a spokeswoman for the Orange County Transit District said.
Results from the pulmonary screenings indicate nothing irregular, but officials are still awaiting blood test results, district spokeswoman Joanne Curran said.
The employees, mostly bus drivers who were working in the bus yard next to the warehouse, were tested after six of the workers became ill shortly after the June 22 fire. The employees, who have since returned to work, have not complained of ill health and "everyone appears to be fine," Curran said.
"It's a relief, but at the same time we didn't expect anything," Curran said of the pulmonary test results. "It was more of a precaution for ourselves."
