Firefighters were called to a fire in a coffee shop in Stanway, Colchester yesterday (Tuesday 7 July).
When firefighters arrived they entered the coffee shop and located the source of the fire which was behind the serving counter. Firefighters managed to extinguish the fire by 7:15pm and cleared the building of smoke.
Watch Manager Pete Donovan said: "As soon as we arrived, firefighters wearing breathing apparatus went into the smoke filled shop to tackle the fire. Fire crews managed to get the fire under control quickly, but unfortunately the coffee shop has suffered extensive damage.
"The on-site staff did a fantastic job at raising the alarm, and due to it's location, came and met us at the entrance so they could lead us to the building."
The cause of the fire was found to be accidental.
