When we got up to go to St. Ignatius Church in Hicksville on Sunday, Oct. 17 there was a very strong smell of something burning (plastic?). We smelled it all around Hicksville and Jericho. I talked to the cashier at Waldbaum’s in Jericho who said she lives in Levittown and she smelled it and it gave her a sore throat. I am still a little dizzy from it. I called the Hicksville Fire Department and they said they didn’t know and where should they send the fire trucks. It was very potent and dizzying. I wish someone could tell us what it was. Thanks for taking the time to read this as everyone in church smelled the odor outside. It wasn’t burning leaves either. A few people at 7:30 mass said it made them gag. Thanks for taking the time to read this and maybe you could shed some light on this.
