    A fire that is burning at a facility at the Northwood Municipal Airport contains sulfuric acid. This is a dangerous situation. Residents of Northwood are being asked to evacuate immediately south of Northwood To The Kensett Community Center approximately 6 miles south of Northwood on Highway 65.

    Residents who do not have Transportation can be transported to Kensett from the sheriffs office at 1000 Central Avenue Northwood Iowa. If transportation to the sheriffs office is needed call the Sheriff at 641-324-2481.

    Repeating, this is a dangerous situation. Residents of Northwood should evacuate south of Northwood To The Kensett Community Center.

    Worth County Emergency Management Director Ray Hufftalin reports there is a distinct odor in the area, but is unsure if anyone has gotten sick from it.
    At least one ABC 6 News viewer says they can smell the fumes from the fire 15 miles to the west of town.
