Man Killed in Tim Horton's Explosion

Whoa. News breaking at this hour that a man has died, victim to an explosion at a Bloor & Yonge Tim Hortons. More details coming in via the CBC wires.

All that seems to be being said right now is that the explosion happened in the back of the shop -- possibly in the bathroom and that the man died of burns to his body. That leaves room for nothing but jokes in really bad taste, so I'm going to leave this one at that... we'll see what develops.

If you're commuting or driving around this afternoon though, you'll want to avoid the area.

Update: As had to be expected, the bomb rumours are already flying.
