Emergency services have responded to an explosion in a motorhome at Lake Hayes near Queenstown.

Its two occupants were treated at the scene by ambulance for minor injuries, a Fire Service spokeswoman said.

The explosion occurred just after 7pm today and luckily did not cause the motorhome to catch fire, she said.

It was likely a gas cylinder caused the explosion, but a Fire Service investigator was en route to the scene to confirm the cause, police said.
