Charleston firefighters say hospital trash and medical waste on the porch and around a home on Morris Street is a public health hazard. Charleston's building commissioner went to check on the home, located at 107 Morris Street. Charleston Fire Department Lt. David Hodges says the abandoned home has been a cause of concern from neighbors for quite some time and has been on the city's radar. Hodges says old syringes, IVs and other biohazard waste was found on the porch. They believe it was taken from a nearby emergency room or hospital and sorted through to find syringes. "If they find a syringe laying on the street, they will grab it and they will reuse it.
