Clinton Township, MI – Explosion at Vaping Supplier Kills One, Injures Firefighter

Clinton Township, MI (March 6, 2024) – An explosion at a building housing vaping suppliers in suburban Detroit killed a 19-year-old man and injured a firefighter on Monday night. The blast, which sent debris flying as far as a mile away, began around 8:50 p.m. in Clinton Township. The fire was contained late Monday, with smoldering ruins visible Tuesday.

The building stored over 100,000 vape pens and had recently received a shipment of butane canisters, more than half of which were present during the fire. The young man was fatally struck by a canister while observing the fire a quarter-mile away.

A firefighter was also injured by a canister hitting a fire vehicle’s windshield. The incident caused widespread debris dispersal and repeated explosions, even as authorities responded.

The ATF has begun investigating the cause, which remains undetermined as the site is too unsafe for inspection. Air quality, initially a concern, appears unaffected apart from smoke. The investigation continues, involving local fire departments and the ATF.
