Has anyone heard if there were people home when the house exploded tonight? Hoping it was empty!!!
The thought that someone may have been inside leaves a pit in the stomach. CBC is quoting Stars Ambulance as saying they were responding to a "significant explosion" in their Brandon call tonight: https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/manitoba/brandon-house-explodes-tuesday-1.5331573 Manitoba Hydro is calling it a "probable gas explosion" at the moment.
They’re citing the same tweet that’s since been removed and imagine they'll update their story. Wouldn’t say that rules out gas as a possible cause but with it removed I’d personally avoid too confidently jumping to conclusions until more formal info has been put out by authorities that are doing the investigating.
It's still very possible it was a gas leak. There would be no need to still have the block evacuated as it is very easy to isolate a gas supply to a house. MB hydro will have removed their tweet as this is still considered an ongoing investigation and until BPS, BFES, and the OFC have completed their investigation they won't be able to post anything publically I'm not speculating that it was a gas leak just pointing out facts and shutting down anyone who speculates that a "gas leak is unlikely"

from this morning’s Police media release: “ At 7:50 pm on October 22, 2019, there was an explosion at a residence in the 200 block of Queens Ave East. Police and the Office of the Fire Commission are investigating the cause of the explosion as it was noted there was a strong smell of natural gas in the area upon Emergence Services arrival. A 63 year old female was found to be deceased within the residence and a 63 year old male is in critical condition and has been transported by STARS to Health Sciences Center in Winnipeg. At this time this incident is still under investigation by Police.” http://police.brandon.ca/media-zone
I would ask that in posting members please be as mindful as possible of the judicial process and to avoid assumption where fact is not known. Police have said that they will release more details on Monday but at this time little has been shared on what has led to conclusions that have resulted in the charge. Even still, in the situation of a charge in a case of the alleged severity that 2nd Degree Murder would imply its important to bear in mind that allegations must ultimately be tested in a court of law. Thank you
