SCHERERVILLE, Ind. — A large fire has engulfed a car junkyard just across the Illinois state line in Schererville.

Flames lept more than 50 feet into the air as sounds of car explosions could be heard for miles.

The multi-alarm fire broke out at Stan’s Auto Salvage Yard.

Crews are expected to be on the scene for the rest of night into the early morning.

Fire tanker trucks were brought in because there were no hydrants near the blaze.

It’s not certain whether anyone was injured.
