A garage explosion that rocked the far north suburban neighborhood of Mundelein has reportedly left one person killed and another injured, according to a report by the Chicago Tribune. Fire officials responded to numerous calls from residents in the area of the 900 block of Killanary Pass Drive at about 11:30 a.m. Friday (Jan. 2, 2015). Fire officials reported that the explosion started in the garage behind the house and fire quickly spread to the house itself. Firemen from a dozen fire departments as well as North Shore Gas also reportedly were on the scene all day. Video from local television stations was quite graphic and neighbors appeared quite shaken in interviews on the tragic incident. Clifford Law Offices has represented a number of people who have been injured or their families who have lost loved ones in explosions at homes or on the job. Such sudden catastrophes are particularly tragic because generally severe injuries or death may occur because of the magnitude of the explosion, as occurred in this explosion in Mundelein.
