Neighbour Ian Scurlock captured the drama of the explosion and fire which rocked a quiet area of Hakin this morning (Monday).

Mr Scurlock, who lives three doors down from the property, became aware of the fire when he heard 'cracking noises' which he believed to be the sound of the windows breaking.

He told the Western Telegraph how he looked out of his door to see flames pouring out of the property's windows.

He captured these dramatic shots of the scene.
