Police cannot rule out criminal charges being laid against those involved in an explosion and fire at an Invercargill property last week.
Emergency services rushed to a Rothesay Place address in Invercargill last Wednesday after a butane gas bottle exploded.
Today police confirmed they were investigating the circumstances which lead to the explosion and left a 28-year-old male and a 27-year-old female in hospital receiving treatment for their burns.
‘‘Police cannot rule out criminal charges being laid as a result of this incident and until the investigation is completed will not be making any further comment.’’
