Small explosion leads to Center Grove pool evacuation

GREENWOOD, Ind. (WISH) – Some residents were evacuated from a Center Grove area apartment complex Friday afternoon when a tank exploded at the apartment’s pool, White River Township Fire Department officials said.

No serious injuries were reported in conjunction with the small explosion at Devonshire Apartments.

As of just before 2 p.m., fire officials said a hazardous materials team was cleaning up the chemical and would have another hour or so of work to complete. The situation at that point was considered under control.

It wasn’t clear why the tank exploded, but there was no fire that accompanied it. Before fire crews arrived, someone put water on the chemical, which complicated the cleanup for the fire department.
