A shop in southern China's Sichuan Province exploded after a potential gas leak, injuring ten.

The dramatic CCTV video, filmed in Zigong City on March 4, shows a ball of fire suddenly erupting out of a shop on the side of a road, just as a woman and child walk past.

Taxis, three-wheelers and scooters driving along the road were damaged by the huge explosion and ten people suffered minor injuries.

According to reports, it was a shop selling paintings, and the cause of the explosion is uncertain but may have been due to a gas leak.

Firefighters, policemen and workers from the natural gas company arrived on site afterward and the case was being investigated.
