KITCHENER – An explosion at a Kitchener home blew a garage door off its hinges.
Just after noon on Tuesday, the Kitchener Fire Department was called to a single family, detached home on Cherrytree Court near Westheights Drive in Kitchener, for a fire and explosion, said Andy O’Reilly, assistant platoon chief.
One person was home at the time and not injured. Neighbours, who heard the explosion, rushed over and put out a small fire with an extinguisher before the fire department arrived, he said.
The cause of the explosion and an estimated cost of damage has yet to be determined.
