Waukegan police and firefighter/paramedics responded about 9:38 PM Friday May 3, 2019 to a report of loud, earth-shaking explosion and fire at Sunset Avenue and Northwestern Avenue Waukegan, Il. The explosion was heard as far away as Round Lake, Wadsworth and Hawthorn Woods. A residential neighborhood of single-family homes is just northwest of the scene, and early efforts to locate the explosion were in the area of Yorkhouse Road and Maple Tree Lane about 1.75 mi northwest of the scene.
