Shed fire causes loud explosion in Sackville, N.S.
There was a lot of buzz in Sackville, N.S. Wednesday evening after area residents heard a loud explosion and spotted smoke on the horizon.
Fire crews arrived to find a shed fully engulfed in flames at the corner of Springfield Lake Road and Fenerty Road.
