WINNIPEG — An explosion Tuesday evening at an Assiniboia area condominium building sent one man to hospital with severe burns.
The explosion and fire happened at around 6:30 p.m. at 27 Apple Lane near Saskatchewan Avenue.
Neighbours heard a loud bang, which blew out an entire wall of the condo complex and damaged several neighbouring units.
One man was taken to hospital with second- and third-degree burns, according to the Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service.
It’s unclear what caused the explosion.
No other injuries were immediately reported, however, a dog was being looked at by animal services staff.
