An explosion destroys a garage and damages at least two houses in Rockford early Wednesday morning.
It happened at about 12:45 in the 1600 block of 16th Street. Investigators say the blast blew out the back of a detached garage. Windows broke in at least two homes in the area.
Witnesses did not see any fire, but a white smoke plume rose about 40 feet into the air after the explosion. A neighbor says his house shook from the blast, and that people from as far as three or four blocks away said they heard the explosion.
No injuries are reported.
