Incident Number: 65141
In attendance: 2 x Great Dunmow, 1 x South Woodham Ferrers (Pinzgauer)
Firefighters were called to a wooden footpath alight which was set alight deliberately.
Access to the incident was difficult, so fire crews requested an off-road vehicle (pinzgauer) and used back pack sprayers to use to extinguish the fire.
The fire affected approximately 15m of the path, but crews manged to stop the fire spreading any further by using a saw to separate the rest of the path.
Firefighters managed to extinguish the fire by 10:20pm. The cause of the fire was deliberate.
