A chemical plant explosion early Sunday left one man in a hospital.
Fire services arrived to find 8 people had been inside the building at the time of the explosion and one man was covered in a chemical called cyclopentadiene, a derivative of coal tar used to make insecticides and plastic.
Toronto Fire Services Captain David Eckerman said, "When we arrived, one employee was covered in a black substance. We decontaminated this person in a mobile shower."
This man was taken to Sunnybrook Hospital with burns to his legs.
Police and the Fire Marshal have been tasked with investigating the cause of this explosion.
