THERE were dramatic scenes in Rowde last night after a van containing gas cylinders caught alight.

Wiltshire Fire and Rescue were called at just before 6pm to Marsh Lane and the crew from Devizes did everything they could but were unable to save the van which was completely destroyed.

No one was hurt and luckily the crew were able to remove the small gas canisters before they exploded.

It took just under an hour to put out the blaze, which caused minor traffic delays.
