Six fire engines have been deployed to what police called a “major incident” in the city of Leicester, UK.

Leicestershire Fire and Rescue is reportedly treating the incident as search and rescue operation. Several media cited witnesses reports of a large explosion on Hinckley Road.

Leicestershire police later reported a “major accident” in the area, and that the roads had been closed. The police also asked people to avoid the area.

​​Earlier, there were several reports that the explosion rocked a convenience store and destroyed a flat along with it. There are currently no official data on any casualties of the blast.
