Numerous residents reported hearing an explosion of some kind in the vicinity at about 6am, and the Queensland Ambulance Service confirmed paramedics had been dispatched to the scene shortly after.

QAS media reported one person was taken to Gympie Hospital in a stable condition from the scene on Chatsworth Rd.

Witnesses on the scene said the cause of the explosion was unclear, but could have been caused by a tyre blowout on the vehicle.
