Man dies in fuel tank explosion

A man has died after a diesel fuel tank exploded at a part time engine repair business at Fieldstone on Monday.


It is believed the 35-year-old man was using an electric grinder to cut a hole in the tank when fuel vapour ignited, causing the explosion.

WorkSafe is investigating.

The death brings the workplace fatality toll to three for 2021, 11 fewer than at the same time last year.
