Incident Number: 59359
In attendance: 2 x Colchester

Fire crews were called to reports of a vehicle fire in Colchester.

When crews arrived, they found a van was completely alight and smoke had spread to a nearby flat via an open window.

Firefighters were able to extinguish the fire by 2:30pm. Fire crews then used a fan to clear the smoke from the affected flat. The kitchen has been left with some smoke damage, but the rest of the flat was unaffected.

The fire was caused by an engine fault on the van.
