Guess I’ll light up while the room fills with gas. KABOOOM!

An elderly woman had a lucky escape after a devastating gas explosion at a house in St Annes.
A fireball ripped through the first floor flat at the property in Parkside Road late last night.

Firefighters say the woman occupant – thought to be in her 80s – had lit a cigarette at the back door at 10.50pm. Her gas cooker was switched on, but no rings were ignited and gas was coming out.

The fireball caused extensive structural damage to the flat, including blowing out the lounge and kitchen windows, ripping off the back door and even lifting the roof. Despite the power of the blast it caused only a small fire in the lounge. The pensioner suffered minor burns to her hands and face.
