    It's scary thinking I drove by the place 2 hours before it happened on my way home last night. :/

    Were you close enough when it happened that you saw it get light out for a second?

    That was a really big explosion, luckily it looks like most of it when up instead of out to where people would have been

    Shit, that's SCARY! I was about 2 hours East of Toronto this morning so I didn't see it. I did see a tornado cut across Lake Simcoe though.

    Thats some scary shit. I'll sure I'll catch it on the news tonight.

    Definitely can't be arson. It's Canada.

    Awesome To See. Please don't attempt to take something I say and turn it into something else. If you want to, do it elsewhere since you can get the fuck yourself.

    But since I see there are people who can't seem to understand and iterate things properly, allow me to fucking explain myself. I live about 10-15 minutes south of where this happened in an apartment building. I would have loved to see this event, since nothing big happens around here. To see it would have been rather enjoyable and would have been quite an experience.

    Yes, unfortunately a firefighter died, but he was in the fire, not 15 minutes south of it.

    Is that better Secksy? Or do you want to assume something else?

    I like to watch lightning storms, people die in those all the time. I still like to watch them, it doesn't mean I like to watch people die.

    My friend got the neighbors house burned by an arson, it spread over the houses and burned down their whole upstairs, and the arson went to the nearest fire station during the fire, robbed them, and burned down the fire station.
