Ten people suffered minor injuries following a large fire during a Jewish celebration in north London, with reports saying people were trying to burn their mobile phones to cleanse their souls.

“Ten individuals suffered minor injuries following large fire lit as part of local Jewish community celebration in Ravensdale Road, Stamford Hill,” Hackney Police said on Twitter according to Reuters.

“No criminal allegations reported. No serious injuries,” the police added.

The explosion may have been caused by a mobile phone, according to a report by the British daily Express, which reported the incident earlier.
