According to the Select Distributors website, the company is a wholesale supplier of vapes, CBD products, hookahs, lighters, and more. Sources said nitrous oxide tanks were exploding and may have caused the initial fire. As the building exploded, large pieces of metal and canisters flew from the company.

"Basically a missile coming right at you, and the power and the pressure and the force that comes with that is immense," Clinton Township Fire Chief Tim Duncan said. "There's pieces that I'm picking up, they're not even the biggest pieces, that are weighing in anywhere from 10-15 pounds."
