Incident Number: 71442
In attendance: 2 x Chelmsford
Firefighters were called to a fire in a restaurant kitchen.
The smoke alarms alerted the restaurant and the restaurant next door to the fire, and they both safely evacuated outside to wait for the fire service.
When fire crews arrived they found the restaurant was slightly smoke logged but there was no obvious sign of fire.
Firefighters investigated and manged to find the source of fire was hidden inside a cavity wall. Fire crews broke through the wall to fully extinguish the fire.
The fire is thought to have originated from the grill in the kitchen which overtime has heated up the wall and caused it to smoulder and catch alight.
