A FIRE investigation is underway today after ‘explosions’ rocked a Hampshire residential street.

Two explosions were heard as a fire broke out in a home in Cambridge Road in Lee-on-Solent.

Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service said three crews from Gosport, Fareham and Portchester used breathing apparatus and four jets as they battled the blaze.

The fire began in a wooden workshop at the back and spread to the house.

But fire-fighters managed to contain the fire, with slight damage caused to the roof.

No-one was injured.

The fire began about 5pm yesterday and was out by 6.45pm.

For a start, they were not quotation marks, these " " are quotation marks. I assume that the apostrophes were used as a form of emphasis.

outhouse n a building near to but separate from a main building.
