Car-crushing sparks blast on north side

BLADE STAFF

The mystery boom that shook walls and rattled nerves in North and East Toledo, Point Place, and 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 phone reports of an explosion about 10:40 p.m. Wednesday. 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.

No injuries were reported.
