Car Explodes in Small Town Parking Lot

 

On Thursday, in the sleepy town of Angola Indiana, at about 5am, residents were awoken to sound of a large explosion. Apparently a car in the parking lot caught fire and exploded. The cause of the explosion is still under investigation.

Although multiple local witness claim the cause was a mobile methamphetamine lab, local and federal law enforcement are denying such claims. Agents from the Angola, Steuben County, and Indiana State Police as well as the ATF assisted at the scene.

Several residents had to be evacuated.
Officer Harry Nix of the Indiana State Police, a bomb specialist, claimed “From the evidence on the scene, it doesn’t appear as though it was (a methamphetamine lab) but we’re not ruling anything out.”

  This was a little to close to home.  
 
This happened in the parking lot of my apt. building. An explosion at 5am is one hell of a way to get woken up. The cop didn´t find it too funny either when I made the comment ´I just love it when things go kablooey!´

  Thanks for the update!  
 
I was hoping you would let me know what the police were about outside yours and you told me it was cornered off. Keep me updated.

You did not say you heard an explosion? LOL. Are you going deaf. :)

The explosion was in the passengers seat of the car, it blew the door off the car.
There were several windows cracked from the concussion, but the only ones busted out were the 2 cars parked next to it.

@Jane, ya, I didnt realize what it was I heard the woke me up until after I opened the door to let the cat out and all of the emergency vehicles were out there.
