Emergency services responding to a fire at a fireworks shop had to dodge missiles as the blaze set off the stock.

Footage shows fire crews tackle the explosive inferno in Melbourne, Florida, which started after a vehicle crashed into the store.

Brevard County Fire Department said on Facebook: "This afternoon at around 4:19 P.M., Brevard County Fire Rescue received a call for a vehicle into a structure at 4433 West New Haven Ave in West Melbourne.

"Callers advised the BCFR Dispatch Center that the vehicle had ignited the interior of Phantom Fireworks.

"When crews from BCFR Station 82 arrived on scene, they found heavy and rapidly deteriorating fire conditions with heavy involvement of the fireworks that were inside of the building."

Fire Chief Patrick Voltaire told the press that a vehicle crashed into the building and then caught fire.

Voltaire later added that all the employees of Phantom Fireworks were able to make it out of the building.
