Firefighters are on the scene of a massive fire in Virden, Manitoba that has reportedly destroyed two homes.
Witnesses told CJ Radio they heard an explosion shortly after 9 a.m. on Friday and saw several firetrucks headed toward Thompson Place.
RCMP say a homeowner was pulled unconscious from the fire before he was taken to hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.
A firefighter was also taken for treatment, but there was no immediate word on the extent of his injuries.
“Initial investigation revealed that a possible gas leak may have contributed to the explosion,” RCMP said in a statement.
The Office of the Fire Commissioner is investigating the cause of the fire.
