Fire erupts at Gurnee propane plant

GURNEE, Ill. (AP) — Firefighters from about 30 fire departments have been called to battle a blaze at a propane plant in the north suburb of Gurnee that has forced the evacuation of people in the area.

Gurnee Firefighter Patrick Archambault says there have been no reports of injuries as a result of the fire that erupted at Pinnacle Propane shortly before noon Thursday. He says Gurnee police have evacuated people from the area around the business, but did not have any details.

Archambault says firefighters have not yet determined a cause of the fire.

Gurnee is located near the Wisconsin border, about 40 miles north of Chicago.
