Truck explosions trigger Pullman hazmat

Several tanker trucks exploded outside a Far South Side factory late Saturday, prompting a hazardous materials response.

The explosions happened in an industrial area near 120th Street and Doty in Chicago's Pullman neighborhood. Witnesses tell ABC7 the explosion lit the sky up with an orange color.

Fire from the blast also damaged an adjacent factory building, but no injuries were reported.

Fire crews used foam to put the fire out.

Hazardous materials crews remained on the scene overnight washing down the burn area and making sure the air quality was back to normal.
