Investigation launched into facility where tar-covered dogs were found

Updated: Wednesday, July 16 2014, 05:26 PM EDT
COLUMBIANA COUNTY, Ohio - Less than 24 hours after a dog was found covered in tar near a closed industrial plant in East Liverpool, a full investigation has been launched into the facility.
The industrial plant, located just blocks from the home where that dog disappeared, is on Michigan Avenue, and there are a lot of questions to be answered.
People from all over East Liverpool showed up Wednesday, including the mayor, fire officials, the police department and a Hazmat team. Their purpose was to identify what chemical is in the building.
The building owner said there are more than five barrels of chemicals are inside the old Daycar Products Plant.
This all comes after two dogs went missing in the town last Friday.
The first dog, Oden, was discovered along Michigan Avenue on Sunday, covered in tar. On Tuesday night, dog rescuers found Oden's sister, Miley, buried in tar chest deep inside the plant.
The pet's owner contacted East Liverpool's mayor Wednesday morning, concerned about a strong chemical odor in the air at the plant. Since then, officials have been at the location trying to find out exactly how many chemicals are inside and what they are.
The pet owner, along with dog rescue teams, lined up alongside the plant visibly upset with the owner.
 "Again I'm aware of what they are, and again, we don't feel that there's concern for you standing here or the neighbors," said James Datesh, president of Daycar. "I'm disappointed. The demolition began over a year ago and the fact that it's not complete I'm very disappointed"
As that owner walked away, people alongside were still visibly angry, visibly upset, asking if he would live in conditions like that?
