Fireballs shoot up high in middle of new construction, Bath

It happened after 5pm so hoping there weren't any fatalities. Two or three big explosions and fireballs rose up accompanied by thick black smoke. It looks under control now although the sirens are still wailing through town and the train station is closed. Trains are stopping at the small station before the middle of Bath - Oldfield Park. BBC says it was just a gas canister...must've been a big gas canister!

N was walking down from Widcombe into Bath when it happened. She heard / saw the explosions. She claims that she knew it was gas canisters exploding and so she was not alarmed. She's such a cool customer!
