A house has been saved from serious fire damage after an electrical fault caused a fire in the garage.
Crews were called to the house in Nevil Way, Loughton, and on arrival reported that the garage was 100% alight and the fire was quickly spreading to the adjoining house and neighbour's garage.
Watch Manager Ryan Fernandes, Loughton Fire Station, said:
"Crews did a great job in quickly bringing the fire under control and stopping it spreading further.
"It is thanks to the high level of firefighting skill and the great team work between Essex County Fire and Rescue Service and London Fire Brigade that the house did not suffer more serious fire damage."
Crews extinguished the fire by 11.30am and then spent time dampening the area down and ensuring the area was safe.
The garage has suffered from fire damage and the house has suffered from some smoke damage.
