A road closure was believed to have been put in place during the afternoon, with traffic building up in the area near Skirbeck Road.

Local resident Ben Walker said: “I was just in the shower at around 12.30pm and opened my window to let the steam out and smoke came into my window.

“I thought it was a barbecue or I’d left the oven on, so went to check and then looked outside and well, the rest is history.”

Lincolnshire Police have also been contacted for further information.
