The explosion causes a trail of petrol to spill out onto the road, and the flammable liquid ends up burning in a line hundreds of feet long behind the van.
Motorists either side of the burning vehicle can be seen trying their best to avoid the fire, with none caught up in the flames, authorities said.
A spokesman for the Kunshan fire service said: “The van caught fire on Chenfeng East Road at about 10:40am.
“The driver’s fine. He got out.”
Images show the heavily burnt van having been doused by arriving firemen.
The cause of the blaze is still under investigation.
