Firefighters with the Laval Fire Dept. responded to an emergency call in the city’s industrial park on Friday after two trucks caught fire, leading to a propane tank explosion.

The blaze, which broke out at a roofing company on Dagenais Blvd. West near le Corbusier Blvd., spread to a nearby business.

Around 3:30 p.m. on Friday, flames were seen shooting from an area within a parking lot where tires were being stored near several vehicles which were parked nearby.

It was all over by 4:30 pm, around when the LFD declared the incident under control.
