A fire and several small explosions broke out Saturday morning at a vehicle battery shop in south suburban Calumet Park.
Firefighters responded about 6 a.m. and found flames blazing through the property from the back of a building at 12320 South Page Avenue, home to Battery Sales and T&S Trading, according to Calumet Park Fire Chief Howard Fisher.
The fire was raised to a still and box alarm and a Level 1 Hazmat situation as clusters of small explosions blasted throughout the scene of the fire as batteries ignited, Fisher said.
The fire was struck out about 7:15 a.m. and no one was injured in the blaze, Fisher said.
The cause had not yet been determined.
