Southdale Rd. Explosion Being Investigated

The Ontario Fire Marshal is now investigating an explosion that caused a fire at a Southdale Rd. townhouse Friday night.

London police got a call to 1217 Southdale Rd. E. around 8:15pm regarding an explosion. The London Fire Department went to the scene to put out the subsequent fire.

Police say a witness told them there was a male in the area before getting the call, but that it’s possibly unrelated.

Constable Jacquie Edwards says she can’t provide much information at this time until the Ontario Fire Marshal concludes their investigation.

She did say that there was substantial damage to the townhouse.
