Default Explosion in Gurnee

The Lake County sheriff's office warned the public Friday night to stay away from the area of Sunset Avenue between Green Bay Road to Delany Road in Gurnee after a what was described as a "ground-shaking" explosion.

"Please allow first-responders to conduct operations!! Area first-responders are on the scene of an explosion/building fire," read a tweet from the sheriff's office.

The Lake County sheriff's office said the explosion occurred around 10 p.m. at Northwestern and Sunset in Waukegan.

NBC 5 Chicago reported viewers called the TV station to say windows were shattered throughout the area.

Emily Laughlin, who lives in the area, told NBC 5 that emergency responders were turning cars away.

"Something exploded," she said. "It looked like it was a building, but they stopped everyone from getting closer."

Other Twitter users likened the noise to a "sonic boom," NBC 5 reported.

I didnt hear or feel anything in VH, but Im also in a noisy warehouse so. My mom in Mundelein said she didnt think she felt anything but heard something and the dogs went nuts.

I heard that last night and I'm pretty far from Gurnee.
I thought maybe a small tree limb fell on the roof, but it was probably this explosion.

i'm in grayslake, right north of clc. google driving says 8 miles, i'd guess 7 as the crow flies.

i was indoors and heard a big boom. i thought it was from a big sudden storm brewing and a major crack of thunder. i think i had the tv on? it was very noticeable. a couple hours later i started seeing stuff on facebook come up about this story.
