Five people were injured Thursday afternoon as an explosion blew out three adjacent stores in a business district in north suburban Waukegan at Grand and Lewis Avenues, authorities said.

"It appears to be a gas explosion at this time," said Waukegan police Chief Bill Biang.

The five injured have been transported to Vista Medical Center East in Waukegan, but there are no details on their conditions. All five of the injured were inside Cleopatra's Unisex Hair Salon, in the 1900 block of Grand Avenue, said Dan Young, deputy fire chief of the Waukegan Fire Department.

The Fire Department responded to the call shortly after noon when a police officer driving by the strip of shops and businesses witnessed the explosion, Young said.

"It lifted the roof off of the building, then set it down. Then the walls collapsed inside," Young said. Fire crews were on the scene Thursday afternoon making sure the buildings were safe to re-enter.

They have not heard any specific reports of people unaccounted for, Young said.

Police have evacuated the whole block, but most of the other buildings just have broken glass.

North Shore Gas is on the scene and trying to turn off the gas. Bonnie Johnson, a spokeswoman for North Shore, said crews will not be able to enter the collapsed structure until firefighters give them word that it is safe, which "could take awhile."

Biang said authorities have evacuated the whole block while they work to get things under control.

Megdi Hussain, 29, who owns a dollar store across the street, said he heard an explosion at about 12:30 p.m., and the windows of his store simultaneously blew out. He said he went outside and saw the fronts of the three stores opposite were gone, and merchandise littered the street.

"I saw dolls that you put tuxes on," he said. "I thought maybe a bomb was thrown in the block."

The building also houses Tuxedo World and Cellular Concepts. Authorities are also investigating an adjacent vacant building, Biang said.

Tribune reporters Jason Meisner and Tina Shah contributed to this report
