An explosion has rocked a Bolton-area building that houses propane tanks. The blast happened Wednesday morning in Caledon, shooting flames 80 feet into the air. Several smaller explosions have since been heard. Emergency crews now have the fire under control. They have evacuated the surrounding area. Humber Station Road is closed between Healey and King Roads. One man has been sent to hospital with minor injuries. The cause of the blast is still not known.

I worked at this location for about half a year before realizing this would happen. The place was ran very relaxed, and safety codes were not enforced. Employees had no use of caution, and were never properly trained.
