She told how the car 'exploded' and a loud bang can be heard during the video clip as firefighters battle to extinguish the flames.

Kym said: "I'm not sure how it happened or if it was done on purpose but was a people carrier that was on fire.

"There was a lady laid on floor too. It is very close to people's houses. Hope the lady is okay."

A spokesperson for South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue said they did not have any record on the incident log of anyone being injured at the scene.
