Firefighters were called to a house fire in Ongar this evening (Wednesday 5 July) after a neighbour saw flames coming out of the property and raised the alarm to the neighbours.
On arrival, firefighters found that the roof of the house, which is unoccupied, was completely alight. The fire had also spread to the roof of a neighbouring property.
Firefighters managed to extinguish the fire by 11pm. Fire crews then worked to dampen down the remaining hotspots and left the scene shortly before midnight.
The fire was caused by faulty electrical cabling in the vacant property.
