N.C. Residents to Return After Fire

APEX, N.C. - Thousands of residents ordered to evacuate their homes because of a fire at a hazardous material plant will be allowed to return Saturday, officials said.

Firefighters extinguished the blaze at EQ Industrial Services at 12:22 a.m., more than a day after Apex officials urged more than 17,000 people to leave their homes, Apex Fire Chief Mark Haraway said.

"We've been given every assurance that it's safe for our citizens to go back home," Mayor Keith Weatherly said.
