Explosion in crawlspace of four-plex
July 10, 2022
Location: Toad River, Northern Rockies Regional Municipality
Regulated industry sector: Gas - Propane system
An unqualified and unlicensed individual installed an underground gas line. The propane gas traveled to the crawlspace of the building, where gas appliances were located, and contacted a source of ignition — resulting in an explosion. It is likely that the cause of the incident was a leaking connection on the underground gas line.
