Wreck Beach boom

VANCOUVER/ CKNW (AM980) -- Vancouver Firefighters paid a visit to Wreck Beach Wednesday night after reports of an explosion. Turned out to be beach toilets.
Seems they hadn't been cleaned in a while and the gas build-up, combined with the heat of the day, caused the blast.
Fire crews had to help some people who were on the beach to leave because the main trail was blocked by the mess left from the toilets.
