Firefighters were called to a fire at a retail unit in Colchester.

When fire crews arrived they reported a small fire on the outside of the shop had smashed the glass front and damaged the entrance way.

Firefighters quickly extinguished the fire, and then worked to clear the smoke from the shop. It took almost two hours to fully clear the smoke from the shop. The shop's contents have suffered severe smoke damage.

The fire investigation found that the fire had started outside the shop, but it is not known how the fire started.
