A MAN was taken to hospital after an aerosol exploded in his face.
The man suffered serious facial injuries after the incident in West Bowling, Bradford.
He was taken to Bradford Royal Infirmary after treatment at the scene by West Yorkshire Ambulance Service paramedics.
The incident happened on a patch of wasteland off Springwood Avenue.
Fire crews were called to reports of a fire last night and found the injured man at the scene.
A West Yorkshire brigade spokesman said: "It appears an aerosol canister was on the fire and it exploded, causing him injuries to his face.
"The fire itself was very quickly put out".
