Police in St. Thomas say an explosion and fire that destroyed a car is "not being treated as suspicious."

Emergency crews were called to Wood Street on Monday morning after a car reportedly exploded.

Following an investigation by police and the St. Thomas Fire Department, officials say the scene has been handed over to the Ontario Fire Marshal's Office to determine the cause.

A 26-year-old St. Thomas man suffered serious, but non-life threatening injuries in the incident and is being treated at a London hospital.

Two houses and three vehicles were also damaged as a result of the incident.

The force of the explosion also blew debris across the street and caused damage to the homes on either side of the driveway.
