FIREFIGHTERS are currently tackling a blaze at a semi-detached bungalow in Essex.

Essex County Fire and Rescue Service was alerted to the fire in East End Road, Bradwell, just after 5.45pm.

Two crews were sent to the scene and firefighters, wearing breathing apparatus, are using three hose reels to tackle the flames.

Incident commander, Assistant Divisional Officer Dave Moore reported that the whole property was well alight.

He said: “Everyone has been accounted for and LPG cylinders inside the property, which might have hindered operations, have been made safe.”

A joint fire and police investigation will begin once the fire has been extinguished.
