Thick, black smoke could possibly be seen for kilometres in consequence.

There had been no accidents and officers say explosions from small propane tanks are the doubtless trigger.

“The studies point out that there have been some propane cylinders that did explode. So, smaller cylinders that we’re conscious of. Also it’s a store, an auto store, so there have been some automobiles we consider which have exploded as properly,” says Deputy Fire Chief Matt Hepditch.

Southwold Township and Strathroy-Caradoc tankers had been known as in to help.

“I used to be leaving from the place and we noticed the burning begin. I run to see what occurred and every part was on fireplace. We want to attend for the hearth division investigation,” says Harold Rodrigue, whose step-father owns the enterprise.
