The ACT Fire Brigade and Ambulance Service received reports of an explosion at healthcare company Stericorp's offices in Sandford Street, Mitchell, just before 1pm (AEDT).A spokesman for the ACT Emergency Services Agency said crews arrived to find 3 men suffering severe burns.

"They were stabilized on scene by intensive care paramedics, and then transported to the Canberra Hospital in a serious condition," he said. About 1000 people were evacuated from two buildings at the site.

District Officer Martin Lloyd says that the explosion was believed to have occurred after aerosol cans were placed into a compactor. "There were no toxic substances released as a result of the incident," he said.
