One person is dead after a house explosion just west of Interstate 65 near Lowell Monday evening.  The Lake County Coroners office says an unidentified man was pronounced dead shortly before 12:30 this morning in the 100 block of East 181st Avenue, which is along State Road 2.  Fire officials received the call around 7 pm, and numerous  departments responded, including the Lowell, Crown Point and Lake Hills Fire Departments.  The fire was said to be out within about three hours. A second house that sits relatively close also caught fire.  The Lake County Sheriffs Department and Indiana State Fire Marshall are investigating. No word on possible cause at this time.  Route 2 was closed through the area, but has since reopened. [Photo/provided]
