A Brampton home, damaged by a reported explosion

A 5-year-old child has been rushed to hospital after an explosion patrially collapsed the back wall of a home in Brampton.

Police were called to the home near Castlemore and Airport Road, just before 1:30 on Tuesday afternoon.

They found bricks and debris littering the backyard of the two storey, semi-detached home.

Three adults were also injured, with what are being called "moderate burn injuries".

The home directly behind and one directly beside the affected home have been evacuated as a precaution.

Police aren't sure what caused the reported explosion and say it's too early to tell if it appears to be suspicious.
