The damage was contained mostly to the garage.
“We would like to remind everybody, if we can, to make sure they keep all pressurized gas cylinders outside. Propane tanks, butane tanks, everything should be stored outside,” said Colin Mickie, platoon chief with Waterloo Fire Rescue.
“This is fairly rare. It does happen.”
The Ontario Fire Marshall was called in and is assisting in the investigation.
