Reaction in Danversport

Several hundred Danvers residents are spending Thanksgiving away from home today. They had to evacuate their houses in the wake of a massive explosion and fire at a chemical plant in their neighborhood early yesterday.

Public Safety officials are planning to begin letting people back into their houses tomorrow as they continue the cleanup and recovery process.

Meanwhile, investigators still don't know what caused the blast and say the probe could take weeks. WBUR's Bianca Vazquez Toness reports on reaction in the riverside section of Danvers.
