House fire

The Chase, Harlow

Incident Number: 2021
In attendance: 2 x Harlow


Firefighters wearing breathing apparatus have extinguished a fire in a fourth floor bedroom of a house within the New Hall Estate.

One hose reel jet was used to tackle the fire by 12:09hrs. A thermal image camera was used to check for any occupiers in the 100 per cent smoked filled property.

Two people inside the property were outside when crews arrived.

Station Officer Darren Martin said: "The fire started in a cupboard on the fourth floor of the property. Clothes touching a hot water pump inside the cupboard caught alight.

"Crews did an excellent job and tackled this fire quickly and effectively. Once we extinguished the fire, we helped deal with a leak within the property. We will be visiting other homes on the estate to give fire safety advice."
