Car Explosion in West End

Firefighters say a plumber whose car exploded in Vancouver’s West End Wednesday morning should buy a lottery ticket because he was left without a scratch after the spectacular blast.

The force of the explosion, in the 800-block of Nicola Street near Robson Street, shattered dozens of windows in nearby buildings -- up to 12 storeys above.

It sent parts of the Toyota Matrix flying down the street, with a windshield tossed half a block away and the car's hood suspended in a tree. The late-model vehicle caught fire shortly before 7 a.m.

Vancouver Fire Department officials told CTV News the explosion was triggered by a leaking acetylene gas tank that was being stored in the back of the vehicle
