Seaview heights, Walton on the Naze

Incident Number: 67534
In attendance: 1 x Frinton, 1 x Clacton


Crews were called to three beach huts alight at Walton on the Naze.

On arrival firefighters reported that the huts were completely alight and worked to extinguish the fire by 5.50pm.

This is the second incident of this nature in a week and both have been recorded as deliberate.

Watch Manager Nick Singleton said: “These deliberate acts of destruction are frustrating for all involved.

“We advise all beach hut owners to remove gas cylinders over the winter months. We also encourage owners to purchase and fix heavy duty storm doors to act as a deterrent to anyone trying to gain access.”

The incident had been left in the care of the police.
