KOMO News reports residents of Algona shared their concerns about a solvent chemical at a town meeting Thursday night.

Washington State Ecology Department's Larry Altose says the agency asked Boeing to conduct indoor testing in 23 homes where the vapors could be released, although that's unlikely.
