Norwood Building Evacuated After 9 Get Sick From Paint Fumes

This afternoon, the fire department evacuated this building on E. 206th Street in Norwood after nine residents began getting sick. Workers were painting the basement with lead-based paint and the fumes traveled up into the poorly ventilated building, causing residents to get nauseous and vomit. The building has since been opened up and the residents are not believed to be seriously ill.

  1. Lead based paints!! In this day and age? After the facts have been learned about lead based products??
    How much money did this landlord think that he/she was saving by using that harmful paint?
    At ReBuilders Source we have friendly water based paint at customer friendly prices like $5 a gal. We have many colors especially "rental unit white".
