A spokesperson for the military base told CTV News CA that the explosion appeared to have occurred in a disused building next to the Comox Valley Search and Rescue center.

The building is located on Heritage Way and was apparently under construction, according to CHEK News.

The base believes the blast was fueled by natural gas.

The blast shook a terminal of the Comox Valley Airport, as witnesses said the explosion sent debris flying and bounced pictures off the walls.
