Explosion rocks Chicago suburb; investigation underway


Recommended Posts

A massive, ground-shaking explosion took place in north of Chicago on Friday night, prompting emergency response personnel to advise the public to stay away from the area.


There were no immediate reports of deaths or injuries following the blast, which occurred around 9 p.m. local time in the Gurnee and Waukegan area, roughly 45 miles north of Chicago, near an intersection where an emissions testing facility is located.


A witness told Chicago's WLS-TV that she "heard a large boom" and saw "debris and sparks flying everywhere." As she drove closer, she saw a building "engulfed in flames" and heard another "large boom."

Sounds like a natural gas explosion. A few years ago a furniture store near here, and half the surrounding  block,  was turned into toothpicks by one.
