The fate of a woman living a home levelled by an explosion Monday is unclear.

Monday afternoon, police and firefighters said they consider her missing, while some neighbours say they think she left the house shortly before the explosion and fire erupted.

The rubble of the collapsed house is unsafe to venture into, say police, so it could be days before investigators can venture inside to search it.

Hamilton Police Staff Sgt. Andrew Dunlop said because of the collapse: "It's unsafe to do anything for a few days."

The house, on Wilson Street at Victoria, collapsed about a half hour after the fire started, said Hamilton Fire Department platoon chief Brian Stark. Firefighters had to call off their search for the occupant.
