Garage fire caused by electrical fault

Broad Road, Braintree
07/08/2017 @ 18:15
Incident Number: 60472
In attendance: 2 x Braintree


Crews were called to a fire this evening (Monday 7 August) after a passer-by reported seeing smoke from a property.

On arrival crews reported that the smoke was coming from a fire in the garage which had been caused by an electrical fault.

Firefighters worked quickly to contain the fire but then had to cut away the wall to tackle hot spots as it had begun to spread through the internal cavity.

Firefighters completely extinguished the fire by 8.20pm.

The garage has suffered around 50% fire damage and an upstairs bedroom has suffered some smoke damage.
