Plenty of people disappointed in the town of Holley. They hoped for a big payday from a chemical plant accident. But after 10 years of fighting, residents are getting checks that range from a just few hundred bucks to just over $2,000.

They fought the case for 11 years. The Diaz chemical company had an explosion that sprayed chemicals all over town. The company has long since shut downand Diaz has now agreed to pay a total of $256,000 to residents.
