TORONTO, Aug. 10 (UPI) -- Two people were injured Sunday in a massive propane explosion that rocked a Toronto neighborhood, officials say.

Witnesses said multiple explosions began just before 4 a.m., with the first explosion so big it could be heard more than 4 miles away. It reportedly shook nearby homes, setting them on fire and blowing out windows.

The blast sent propane tanks soaring into the air and produced a six-alarm fire with more than 100 firefighters responding to the scene, the CBC reported.
