INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - Breathing through thick, black smoke would be difficult for anyone. Annie Jo Rees of Indianapolis described doing so in her situation with one word; scary.
The 78-year-old has one lung. She lives with her husband about two blocks from the scene of the fire that destroyed most of a 440,000 square foot facility on the city's southwest side.
Toxic smoke from fire that burned for days forced Rees from her home. She stayed with family until Tuesday night.

Four days after the fire broke out Rees had to wear a mask while outdoors to prevent shortage of breath and wheezing.
"If I take this mask down, it's not going to be very long before I'm going to have to [put] it right back," Rees said.
Detectives stopped by the Rees home to ask if the couple had seen anything suspicious around their neighborhood before the fire. The couple said they have been anxious to hear its cause.
