Essex County Fire and Rescue Service http://www.essex-fire.gov.uk Essex County Fire and Rescue Service : News Feed Copyright 2020, Essex County Fire and Rescue Service. Sat, 30 May 202010:03:00 GMT Tea towel left on oven starts kitchen fire - Porter Way, A family has had a lucky escape after a smoke alarm alerted them to a fire in their kitchen. 

Crews were called to the ground floor flat in Porter Way, Clacton-on-Sea, just after 10am this morning after the family's cooker was accidentally turned on and set alight to a tea towel on top of the hob. 

Watch Manager Ben Turner, Clacton Fire Station, said:

"We think a child probably accidentally turned on the hob, which set alight to the tea towel and created a lot of smoke. 

"If it hadn't been for the smoke alarms the family would not have realised there was a fire and it could have developed into a far larger incident before they could take action. 

"It's important to turn your cooker off when you're not using it and make sure nothing is left on top of it. 

"It's also a good idea to install a stair gate, or close your kitchen door, to stop young children or pets getting in when you're not in there.

"Thanks to the quick actions of the family the flat has only suffered a small amount of smoke damage and everyone got out safely."

Once the fire was extinguished, crews cleared the flat of smoke and spent time talking through safety advice with the family and ensuring everyone was ok. 


Do you have working smoke alarms in your home?

We want everyone in Essex to have a working smoke alarm on every level of their home and will fit them for free if you haven't got any. Please book a free home fire safety visit today at www.essex-fire.gov.uk/book or call 0330 303 0088.

Wildfire advice for Essex as Met Office issues amber warning A 'very high' risk of wildfire is in place across Essex this weekend and into next week, Essex County Fire and Rescue Service has warned.

As public lockdown restrictions continue to be eased amid the coronavirus pandemic, residents have been warned to exercise extreme caution and take action to lower the risk of wildfires breaking out.

Assistant Chief Officer Moira Bruin said:

“We appreciate many people are beginning to enjoy more time outside as they start to meet up with friends and family in outdoor spaces. 

“We have had very little rain over the past two months, and the Met Office is forecasting a high risk of wildfires in our county.

“Vast areas of countryside is tinder dry and has all of the ingredients for fire to take hold and spread.

“We’ve already seen some devastating wildfires in other parts of the county this year.

“We can all take easy steps to reduce the risk of a wildfire or outdoor fire starting, so please, exercise extreme caution and think twice before using anything involving a naked flame, such as disposable barbecues or campfire.

“Take all your rubbish with you when you go home - even sunlight shining through a glass bottle can cause a fire.

“Please also think about how you dispose of cigarettes and smoking materials - just one cigarette in a bush or dry leaves can start a fire.”

Landowners are also advised, where possible, to be prepared for fires and ensure that fire breaks are cut and well maintained with any cut grasses and vegetation removed from the site.

Electric blanket starts bedroom fire - Gordon Road, Grays A house has been badly fire damaged after an electric blanket caught fire. 

Crews were called to the property in Gordon Road, Grays, last night after the home owners realised there was a fire.

Initially the elderly couple had thought the sound of the smoke alarms was on the TV, and it was not until they noticed smoke that they then got out, stayed out and called 999. 

On arrival firefighters were met with a large fire in the bedroom which was quickly spreading to the neighbouring property and roof space. 

Watch Manager Kevin Hercock, Orsett Fire Station, said:

"We could see the smoke from a mile and a half away from the property and as we got closer there were large flames coming from the first floor. 

"I can not praise our crews enough - their hard work and skill brought the fire under control and stopped it spreading any further - ultimately saving the neighbouring property from fire damage. 

"Following an investigation we found the cause of the fire to be an electric blanket that was about 30 years old. 

"I urge anyone using electric items to make sure they are in good working order and regularly tested if possible. 

"It's also so important to check your surroundings if you hear an alarm - don't assume it's coming from the TV or someone else's property."

Crews extinguished the fire within an hour and a half.

The bedroom has been completely destroyed and the couple suffered from smoke inhalation and were left in the care of the Ambulance Service.

Many other staff members have been spending their free time delivering supplies in their local community.

The volunteers have been helping during evenings and weekends. 

This is in addition to Service’s work with the East of England Ambulance Service Trust, with 19 on-call firefighters driving ambulances and the Service’s driving instructors training 27 student paramedics and army volunteers to drive ambulances.

Bungalow fire in Jaywick - Humber Avenue, Jaywick Four crews tackled a fire which destroyed a bungalow in Jaywick.

Firefighters were called to Humber Avenue today at 12.24am and found a single-storey building alight.

They could not enter the building because it was so badly damaged and it took until 1.50am to fully extinguish the fire.

Crews returned to the scene at 5am and again at 9am to make sure the fire did not reignite. An investigation is ongoing to establish the cause. 

Watch Manager Ian Street said: "It was a substantial fire and crews worked really hard to stop it spreading to neighbouring properties.

"Thankfully the occupant did the right thing and got out of the property before we had arrived and stayed out."

Watch Manager Street said the incident highlighted the importance keeping your loft clear of unnecessary items.

The loft space of the property was being used to storage which posed an additional hazard for crews and fuelled the fire.

Garden fire damages three properties - Greding Walk, Brentwood Crews battled to extinguish a quick-spreading garden fire which affected three properties. 

A resident in Greding Walk, Brentwood, was burning some boxes today at 3.53pm when the fire got out of control.

Conifers caught light and the fire rapidly spread, destroying one shed and badly damaging a second shed, conservatory, guttering and outbuilding roof.

Three properties were affected by the fire, which was extinguished at 5.30pm

Watch Manager Stuart Hay said: "Our crews put in a fantastic effort to stop the fire spreading any further, I can't praise them enough.

"If we'd arrived a few minutes later it could have been a lot worse, destroying or damaging garages and houses."

Watch Manager Hay said the incident highlighted the dangers of burning waste in your garden.

He said: "If you are burning rubbish, make sure you do it in a container and have a hose or bucket of water close by.

"Do not start fires near trees or bushes - and particularly conifers which go up in flames in seconds." 


Outdoor fire safety: bonfires

  • Site the bonfire well away from houses, garages, sheds, fences, overhead cables, trees and shrubs
  • Never leave the bonfire burning unattended
  • Build the stack so that it is stable and will not collapse outwards or to one side
  • NEVER use flammable liquids - paraffin or petrol - to light the fire
  • Don't burn foam-filled furniture, aerosols, tins of paint and bottles
  • Keep everyone away from the fire - especially children, who must be supervised at all times
  • Pour water on the embers before leaving

Smoke alarms alert family to house fire - Keaton Way, Harlow Firefighters have issued a safety warning after an extension lead left plugged in overnight caused a house fire.

Crews were called to a fire in a terraced house in Keaton Way, Harlow, today at 2.06am.

Thankfully, the house had two working smoke alarms which alerted the family of four who got to safety.

Firefighters extinguished the fire by 2.38am but the family have been left homeless due to fire damage to the ground floor and smoke damage throughout the house.

Watch Manager Gavin Ellis said: "This incident goes to show yet again just how important smoke alarms are – and why we want every home in Essex to be fitted with them.

“While this house has sadly been badly damaged, the family were able to get out safely after being alerted to the fire.

"The smoke alarms have made a huge difference in ensuring this incident wasn’t much more serious for those involved."

The fire started after a reel-style extension lead was left plugged in overnight.

Watch Manager Ellis said "The extension lead was still in its drum and had been left plugged in. It overheated and set fire to an armchair. 

"Please double-check that you have turned off or unplugged electrical appliances when they are not in use – especially if you’re going to bed.

"You’d be surprised how quickly and easily they can ignite and become serious fires.”

Follow our fire safety advice while cooking and stay safe in your home

Did you know that more than half of accidental fires in homes are caused by cooking, like this one?

Cooking can be incredibly dangerous if you don't follow some basic safety guidelines - fires start much more quickly and easily than you might think. Here are 5 top tips to stay safe while you're preparing a snack or meal:

  • Don't cook while tired, drinking alcohol or using medication that might make you feel drowsy - it's easier to fall asleep and forget about it than you might think
  • You should never leave cooking unattended - but if you do need to leave the room briefly, take pans off the heat or turn them down to reduce the risk of fire
  • Take care if you're wearing loose clothing - this can easily catch fire
  • Keep tea towels, kitchen roll and cloths away from the cooker and hob
  • When you've finished cooking, double check the cooker is off
