Chemtool Inc. Plant Fire Investigation


Girard Sharp is investigating reports of a fire at the Chemtool Inc. plant in Rockton, Illinois on June 14, 2021. The fire prompted a mandatory evacuation and mask mandate for all residents and businesses within a one-mile radius.

Dr. Sandra Martell, a public health administrator for Winnebago County, has stated that there are concerns about “particulate matter that can become pulmonary irritants, especially to those with compromised immune systems.”

Chemtool Inc., which lists Rockton as its headquarters, produces greases, lubricants, metal working fluids and cleaners, among other products. About 150 homes are in the evacuation zone.

If you or someone you know was impacted by the Chemtool Inc. Plant Fire, you may have a claim.
