Incident Number: 80986
In attendance: 1 x Shoeburyness, 1 x Southend

Crews were called to a workshop after reports that it was filled with smoke.

On arrival firefighters reported that the building was 75% smoke logged.

Crew Manager Mark Blakebrough, Southend Fire Station, said:

“The workshop contained an industrial paint drying oven, which had been left on, and as the temperature went up it began producing large amounts of smoke.

Our crews did a brilliant job in quickly determining the cause of the smoke, isolating the oven and ventilating the building."

The building has suffered some smoke damage.
