Crews responded to a townhouse explosion in southwest suburban Romeoville Tuesday night.
It happened about 7:30 p.m. on Strawflower Court in the Wespark subdivision southwest of Weber and Taylor roads, according to Romeoville police and Nicor, which delivers natural gas to the area.
“We are assisting local authorities with the investigation,” Nicor spokeswoman Jae Miller said in an email.
Police declined to release more details. Romeoville fire officials could not immediately be reached for comment.
The American Red Cross was at the scene providing disaster assistance, an agency spokeswoman said. It wasn’t clear how many people were displaced.
