Firecrews prevented a potential explosion after a fire involving two gas cylinders in Worksop.

Crews tackled a blazing shed containing a 7kg lpg cylinder and a 3kg compressed air cylinder on Kilton Road, on Sunday.

They managed to isolate the cylinders after extinguishing the fire in the 4x6m shed, using a hose reel jet and breathing apparatus.

Trees and undergrowth were severely damaged by the fire, which was reported at 8.11pm.

The lpg cylinder was undamaged and the air cylinder was deemed sufficiently cool after 30 minutes of damping down.

There were interruptions to nearby train services.
