At approximately 4:45pm this afternoon, Peel Regional Police tweeted that an explosion had taken place at Dixie and Rathburn Road East in Mississauga:

Around that time, social media also began to fill up with images and videos of smoke clouds and destruction:

And reports are now coming in that more than one home has been levelled from the blast:

No official report yet on how many people have been injured or killed in the explosion but first responders are currently on the scene. This chilling street-side video certainly presents a bleak aftermath though. Our thoughts are with the residents of Mississauga.

More as we get it.
