A WOMAN has suffered burns to her face after escaping a fire caused by a gas explosion in a glass fronted cooker inside a caravan, in Hollywood.

Emergency services were called and two crews from Redditch Fire Station attended along with an ambulance to Houndsfield Lane at about 3.30pm on Friday (January 1).

The 22-year-old was able to leave the caravan on her own with superficial burns and was treated at the scene and taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospitals’ specialist burns centre by ambulance.

The fire service believe the explosion was caused by an aerosol can which was left under the grill.
