Chemtool Fire in Rockton, Illinois


We are proud to represent residents of Rockton, IL who lost use of property following massive industrial fire on June 14, 2021. The fire burned for the remainder of the week creating a thick black cloud of smoke over the community and triggering an evacuation of residents. The magnitude of damage from the Chemtool fire has created a dangerous and detrimental situation around the facility, with property damage and the need for a large-scale environmental clean-up. The proposed class of impacted individuals who suffered property damage is in the thousands.

Romanucci & Blandin’s Attorney David Neiman has been named to the Interim Plaintiffs Steering Council (PSC) as part of the legal leadership team on this class action.
