Explosions in Blackfen

Two loud explosions and a plume of black smoke that seems about half a mile from the presbytery to the south a few minutes ago. Say a prayer that nobody is hurt. Lots of sirens starting to converge.

UPDATE
Turns out it was an over-enthusiastic family bonfire involving the disposal of some dodgy fireworks. Neighbours were not terribly amused. Nobody was hurt, thank God.
