A house on Wolverine avenue was completely leveled by the explosion and two additional houses were seriously damaged. As many as 20 other homes suffered structural damage from the explosion.  There are unconfirmed reports that at least one person is dead.

Neighbours report that a toddler was thrown from her crib by the explosion and had to be extracted from a bedroom wall.  Thankfully the toddler only suffered a few cuts and bruises.

At this point we do not have any other information on any possible injuries.
