Fire caused by overheated electrical unit

Stonards Hill, Loughton
29/09/2020 @ 14:33
Incident Number: 131906
In attendance: 1 x Loughton, 1 x Waltham Abbey


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.
