Explosion kills man, dog
A MAN and a dog are dead after a shed exploded in Victoria’s Dandenong Ranges, with one neighbour saying he heard “a lot of screaming” before the incident.
Authorities were called to a shed in Ferntree Gully just before 4.45pm on Friday after reports of an explosion.
The man, who is yet to be identified, and a dog were found dead inside after the fire was extinguished.
John, who lives nearby, said he heard screaming before the blaze. “I heard a lot, a lot of screaming, then a couple of minutes later the house went up in flames,” he said.
The fire was not being treated as suspicious, police said.
