Halifax Regional Fire and Emergency says there are no serious injuries after a roof explosion on a silo at Burnside Industrial Park in Dartmouth.

The Fire Department says the witnesses reported a powerful explosion on MacDonald's Avenue at about 3:20. Monday.

Officials say the roof broke out and landed on the car. The explosion caused the spread of concrete and dust throughout the area. Some parts can be seen at 1000 feet.

Fire Department says no one is seriously hurt.

While several witnesses reported smoking, fire officials say there is no fire, and what seemed to smoke was actually concrete dust from silos.

Firefighters sent a dungeon to assess the damage and wastefield.
