I heard a series of incredibly loud explosions and what looks like smoke near upper queen st, anyone know what caused it? people are rubber necking out windows to determine it. Sirens can be heard.

Heard them here (also in Newton)... must admit I didn't hear them very clearly but others did and one guy thought it was a gunshots. I thought that maybe he watches too many TV programs, but curious to know what it was.
