Fire crews remain on the scene of a fire and propane gas explosion that occurred shortly before 9 a.m. Saturday at a trucking company warehouse in the 600 block of 131st in Hammond.  Hammond Emergency Management official Scott DeAngelo says as a precaution two residences in the area were evacuated in the area because of thick black smoke coming from the fire.  No injuries were reported however streets in the vicinity of the fire are still reportedly closed.

At one time police closed Calumet Avenue at 129th Avenue as well as portions of Calumet Avenue at Sheffield Avenue. Reportedly smoke from the blaze partially obscured drivers' visibility at the near by west junction of Cline Avenue and the Indiana Toll Road.
