Boom shakes walls, rattles parts of Toledo

The mystery boom that shook walls and rattled nerves in North and East Toledo, Point Place, Washington Township was nothing more than a little gas -- as in gasoline -- authorities said.

Toledo police and the Lucas County sheriff's office started getting telephoned reports of an explosion or booming sound about 10:40 p.m.

Sheriff's dispatchers said that OmniSource Corp., a metal recycling business on North Detroit Avenue, was crushing cars when gasoline vapors in one of the vehicles detonated. 

There were no reports of injury.
