Close to 30 people have been injured following the explosion in Stamford Hill in north London, which may have been caused by a mobile phone.
Jewish news website Yeshiva commented on the event, saying: "It appears that the explosion was caused by fuel and not the smartphone, although there definitely were multiple smartphones placed inside the pile to be burned.”
Around thirty individuals are believed to have been treated for their injuries, with ten being taken to hospital.
Jewish ambulance service Hatzola and London Ambulance Service attended the scene to treat burn victims.
