THUNDER BAY -- City police say while a house explosion last week is considered suspicious, it was not a meth lab.
Officers with the Thunder Bay Police Service and the Ontario Fire Marshall’s Office are investigating a suspicious explosion that destroyed a home on St. Clair Avenue on Oct. 18. The investigation turned up some articles from the home that have been sent out of Thunder Bay for forensic analysis.
Police wouldn’t say what those articles were or why the explosion is suspicious.
“The preliminary investigation would indicate that there is some suspicious activity that would have played a part in the result of the explosion,” Acting Det. Insp. Don Lewis said Monday afternoon.
“If I got into (specifics) it may jeopardize some of the further investigation that has to be done with interviews and so forth.”
A 57-year-old man was in the house at the time. He has been sent to Toronto with serious injuries.
The owner of the home was working at the time. Lewis would only say that the man and owner of the home were acquaintances.
As for whether the explosion will become a criminal investigation, Lewis said that will depend on what the forensic analysis reveals.
He didn’t know how long that would take.
Police and fire are finished the investigation at the home itself.
The property was being monitored by a private security company Monday morning.
