A major blaze has broken out and gutted  the Strikes Garden Centre in Stokesley, North Yorkshire.

Emergency services were alerted to the incident following reports of a huge explosion at the  popular garden centre.

At the time of the incident the garden centre was closed and no one is believed to have been injured within the fire.

The fire is believed to have broken out just after 10pm on Friday evening, sparking a huge emergency response.

North Yorkshire Fire & Rescue service said the main building of the business was entirely involved with 25 fire fighters on scene.

A spokesman for North Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service said the site’s main building, measuring around 85 metres by 25 metres, was “entirely involved” in the fire.

Around 25 firefighters are at the garden centre, which is on the roundabout connecting the A172 and B1365.

An eye witness has told Police Hour “We heard a huge bang coming from the Garden centre and the next thing we know huge flames are coming out from behind the garden centre

“The fire spread very quickly before the fire service could get to the scene. The heat coming from the building was incredible

“We just hope no one was hurt”

All roads in the surrounding area currently closed to allow emergency services to deal with the incident.
