FIREFIGHTERS are warning of the dangers of lighting and throwing gas canisters.
It comes after a crew from Gosport were called to the BMX track in Grange Road.
A pile of rubbish was on fire, which included a gas canister.
It caused a small explosion, which was quickly put out by the firefighters.
Now they have warned against the danger of putting such items on to an open flame.
The incident happened at 9.30pm on Saturday.
