Incident Number: 126514
In attendance: 2 x Grays, 1 x Prsett, 1 x Corringham


Firefighters were called to the scene of a derelict building fire. As the fire could be seen from the A13 our Control staff took over 60 calls to it.

On arrival crews reported that the building, which measures around 40 metres x 15 metres, was completely alight. 

Crews extinguished the fire by 8pm and stayed on site to continue dampening down the area to ensure it was completely cool. 

An investigation to establish the cause of the fire will now take place.
