NIAGARA FALLS – Investigators from the Office of the Ontario Fire Marshal have been called in to search for the cause of an explosion at a home on Park Street.
The blast happened sometime shortly before 7 a.m. Thursday.
The two-storey home is located on the north-side of Park Street, between Crysler and St. Clair.
Emergency crews arriving at the scene cordoned off the property and a portion of the street, which contained pieces of metal blown off the front of the garage.
The building has a ‘For Sale’ sign on the front.
A man at the scene who said he is the person who looks after the property for the owner was waiting for an insurance adjuster to arrive.
The man, who didn’t give his name, said the incident may have involved a natural gas leak, but he has been told nothing official from investigators.
No one was injured as a result of the blast.
