Firefighters prevented the potential explosion involving two gas cylinders in the town on Sunday.

Crews tackled a shed containing a 7kg lpg cylinder and a 3kg compressed air cylinder on Kilton Road, on 22nd March.

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.

Interruptions were caused to nearby train services.
