    Default caution----burning trash

    i WAS VISITING A SICK CHILD TODAY. tHEY HAD A Small trash fire going and it was ok. ten-15 minutes later i almost can not talk and my throat is sore.
    Well i left right away. still very sore and eyes burning.
    What could they have been burning?
    And the boy just got out of surgery.... He seems to be o.k.

    people like this better keep their windows rolled up on the carretera, lest they get behind a smoker

    It could be plastic bags. Also perhaps you have an allergy or senistivity to something in the smoke that is causing these symptoms.
