MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Seven large propane tanks exploded early Thursday afternoon at an auto salvage yard in Milwaukee, about two miles southwest of Mitchell International Airport.  

Around a dozen Milwaukee fire companies responded close to noon. The fire was brought under control around 1 p.m., after the roof of the facility had collapsed.  

An airport spur, Highway 119, was closed near the site of the blaze but has since re-opened. Homes in the area were evacuated.  

Officials said the airport did not have its operations interrupted.
