A man successfully drove his burning lorry out of a tunnel to avoid an explosion inside. In the dramatic footage, captured in Guizhou Province on Friday 6 November, the lorry can be seen rushing out with huge flames surrounding it. Police and firemen later arrived and worked together to extinguish the blaze after the driver managed to stop the lorry in a safe, open area.

According to news reports, the fire started from one of the back tyres and destroyed all the goods on board. The brave driver luckily survived unscathed.
