Blast Incident? Not really ...

Timmins Police and the Ontario Ministry of Labour are investigating an unusual incident where a Timmins public works truck was damaged in a blasting incident this morning. Officials are keeping tight lipped about the incident but it involved a city dump truck that received a flat tire. The driver told police he heard a bang, felt the truck shake and saw flames from the front end of the truck. No one was hurt in the incident.
UPDATE @ 4:30 p.m.- Although city workers described the incident as a blast, police say it now appears the incident was the result of the truck touching overhead hydro wires which resulted in a blowout on the front tire.
