TORONTO, Sept. 22 /CNW/ - The Office of the Fire Marshal (OFM) today
released the scene at 54 Murray Road, Toronto to the property owners. OFM
investigators and engineers have completed their on-site investigation at the
propane explosion that occurred on August 10, 2008.
The OFM has held the scene since the explosion. All reasonable steps have
been taken to remove any fire and explosion hazards. The Ministry of the
Environment has ordered the property owner and Sunrise Propane to immediately
take control of site security and monitoring to ensure the community continues
to be protected. The property owner has acknowledged the site release and has
put in place site security.
The OFM investigation is ongoing. The investigative team follows a
scientific, systematic and methodological investigative process. Given the
number of items taken from the scene by investigators, the process of
examining these items may take considerable time. At this time, there is no
new information available on the OFM investigation.
OFM investigators were greatly assisted by the City of Toronto, Toronto
Fire, Police and Emergency Medical Services, Technical Standards and Safety
Authority (TSSA) and numerous provincial agencies during the scene
