“One patient has been treated and taken to hospital with burns to the hand and we remain on stand-by at the scene.”

The injuries are not thought to be serious, he added.

LFB station manager Sam Kazmanli said: “This is a large fire, cylinders are involved so a hazard zone has been set as cylinders can explode when exposed to heat.

“There is a lot of smoke in the air. As a precaution, local residents are advised to keep their windows and doors closed.”
