Firefighters were called to a small fire in a house in Loughton this afternoon after an electrial distribution board overheated and caught fire.
The unit was in a cupboard under the stairs, which thankfully was completely empty at the time, so the fire did not spread.
Firefighters quickly extinguished the smouldering unit using a dry powder extinguisher.
The area under the stairs only suffered very minor damage.
