Authorities are still looking into the cause of an explosion and fire in LaPorte's downtown area.

It happened about 5 a.m. yesterday.......

A semi truck was fully engulfed in flames when emergency responders arrived

near the tracks along Washington St......behind the old train depot.

The burning truck was parked in a grassy area close to where other vehicles and

semis were parked.

Police say fire damage was so severe.....the make and model of the truck and other

vehicle information were not known...

Right now.....the cause remains undetermined.

Currently.....police are investigating to see if the fire is linked to truck being vandalized

two months ago in LaPorte.
