A shed at Windsor Garden Centre was burnt to the ground in the early hours of this morning.
Firefighters from Maidenhead were called to the Dedworth Road garden centre at 12.45am after neighbours had reported hearing explosions.
It transpired that the explosions were caused due to chemical cleaning products which had been stored in the shed and had reacted with the flames.
A spokesman from Maidenhead Fire Station said: "We managed to put out the fire but the shed was completely destroyed. We were unable to determine what caused the fire."
More than 50 street parties are set to take place this weekend across the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and the surrounding areas.
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
