THIS dramatic video footage has emerged of an explosion during a fire in a North Yorkshire village.

North Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service said today it was still investigating the cause of the blaze, which badly damaged a shed, car and caravan in Barlby, near Selby, on Saturday evening.

The Press reported yesterday how cylinder parts were sent flying 125 metres through the air in the fire, with one resident saying there had been a 'massive explosion,' which was thought to have been caused by gas canisters exploding.

Fire chiefs said that thankfully no one was hurt, and firefighters did an 'amazing job' to limit the damage.

Now The Press has obtained this video showing the fire burning and then the explosion, which happened to the evident shock of onlookers.

The fire service has said that crews from Selby, York and Acomb went the fire, following reports that a shed fire had spread to a caravan and a residential property, and said extensive damage was caused to the shed, a caravan and a car. It said residential properties were also affected, and the fire was extinguished using hose reels and breathing apparatus.
