Incident Number: 58451
In attendance: 2 x Southend, 1 x Shoeburyness, 1 x Leigh
Firefighters were called to a fire in a derelict pub in Southend. This is the third incident at the same location in the last month (first incident: #56748, second incident: #56840)
When firefighters arrived at the property they reported the building was 100% smoke logged.
Because the building was boarded up crews firstly had to work to gain access and then extinguished the fire and ventilated the building by 5.40pm.
The cause of the fire has been recorded as deliberate.
