    Propane tanks exploded causing a massive fire that destroyed a Thompson Auto Repair Shop Wednesday.

    Smoke and flames ripped through the K&R Auto Body on Riverside Drive. 15 fire departments, including crews from Massachusetts and Rhode Island, responded.
    "It was pretty loud. A couple of explosions, flames really high and a lot of black smoke," said resident Rita Blias.

    Fire officials said the business has been closed for some time. It is unclear what caused the tanks to explode.

    No one was hurt in the fire.
