An explosion and fire prompted the evacuation of a car dealership in downtown Pueblo on Thursday.
A propane tank used to heat tar on a roofing trailer exploded about 10:30 a.m. at Diodosio Motors in downtown Pueblo. A second tank was also reported to be in danger of blowing up, but did not.
Smoke from the initial explosion poured across I-25, limiting visibility and shutting down the road for a few minutes. The 13th Street exit ramps and a 3-block stretch of Santa Fe were also closed while firefighters battled the flames.
No injuries were reported, and no damage estimate has been released.
