Incident Number: 89634
In attendance: 1 x Shoeburyness, 2 x Southend

Firefighters were called to a fuel tanker on fire in Southend early this morning (Tuesday 6 November).

The tanker, which was parked in an industrial yard, contained an unknown quantity of kerosene.

When the fire crew arrived at the incident, they reported the cab and the first section of the tanker was alight. The crew quickly managed to extinguish the fire, while keeping the rest of the tanker cool so the fire didn't spread and catch the whole tanker alight.

An investigation will be carried out to establish the cause of the fire.
