NPR's Larry Abramson reports on what it takes to decontaminate a building once anthrax spores have been found. The bio-cleanup crew is using bleach and other cleaning solutions to rid the building of spores. This is the first large-scale bio cleanup job for the EPA, which normally responds to oil and chemical spills.
