As of 11:30am today, the Office of the Fire Marshal was continuing its investigation into the explosion on Maple Grove Road.
Last night (February 4, 2019), a meeting was held where impacted homeowners were provided with an update on the status of the homes affected by the explosion.
Of those homes, seven were released back to homeowners.
An additional four properties were released to the Town. Based on inspections by Town Building Inspectors, orders have been issued that these homes are currently unsafe to occupy. Beginning today, these homeowners, along with their insurance agencies, will be granted access so that adjusters, engineers and/or other experts can assess any damage. Once the homeowner is able to present the Town with an assessment of the property and a remediation plan (if necessary) the unsafe order will be lifted, and the owner will have full access to their home.
Four other properties still remain under investigation by the Office of the Fire Marshal. These four properties experienced significant damage from the explosion. It is anticipated that it will be some time before these properties will be available for occupancy.
The Town of Caledon, with support from the Region of Peel, continues to provide services to those families affected and displaced. This includes preventative measures against damage from flooding and freezing conditions.
