Explosion in fireworks factory caught on camera

The incredible footage below shows the moment a fireworks factory, near Bogota in Columbia exploded.

In the footage, the cameraman is seen being blown off his feet by the blast before running for cover. Amazingly no-one appears to have been seriously injured in the blast with one passing driver being treated for minor shrapnel wounds on the scene, before continuing on his way.

Fire crews from nearby cities were called in to fight the blaze and and the highway was closed in both directions.

Unsurprisingly the building was almost completely destroyed, with five warehouses being used to store the gunpowder going up in a literal big bang.
