Children were left ‘terrified’ after a car exploded outside a house in Sheffield.
Frightened residents on Hazlebarrow Crescent were woken by a loud bang on Friday, August 31, at about 11pm.
After rushing out of their homes, residents saw a car still alight after ‘exploding’ seconds earlier.
Residents on the street said that the explosion left their homes shaking and set off a number of house alarms.
A paramedic who lives on the street tweeted: “Woken up to a car exploding outside my house, thankfully no one hurt (no one wants to be helped by a #Paramedic in his PJs anyway) very fast response from @SYFR and @syptweet - thank you!
“Unsure if deliberate yet but if it is - very uncool, lots of scared children!”
South Yorkshire Police has been contacted for a response.
