The cause of a fire in Douglas yesterday afternoon remains unknown.

Fire crews were called out to Linden Gardens at around 2.45.

When they arrived a van and shed were found to be well alight with flames reaching 15 ft in the air.

The outbuilding was completely destroyed.

Crews spent around 3 and a half hours dealing with the fire.

A gas cylinder was found in the area and this has to be cooled.

The Isle of Man Fire and Rescue Service advises people not to store unwanted cylinders or large amounts of fuel in garden sheds.
