POLICE are investigating after a fire destroyed a caravan and firefighters had to cool two gas cylinders which could have caused an explosion.

The incident which completely destroyed the caravan in Coulson Way, Burnham, is being treated as arson, officers said.

Firefighters from Beaconsfield and Maidenhead went to the area and had to use two hose reels to put out the fire on Wednesday this week.

They also cooled two 15kg gas cylinders which could have caused an explosion.

Firefighters are now warning caravan owners to be careful, especially with storing gas cylinders.

Watch Manager Paul Casey from Beaconsfield Fire Station said: "It is good practice to store gas cylinders away from caravans and vehicles, especially when parked close to your property."

“We would urge people to make sure that caravans are kept locked and secure at all times to avoid potential arson threats” he added.
