Arsonists strike twice

FIRE crews were twice called to the same bungalow targeted by arsonists.

The firebugs struck in Meadow Way, Jaywick, at 1.15pm yesterday and firefighetrs wearing breathing apparatus had to entre the burning building to extinguish the flames. They returned at 5.45pm after reports the fire had been reignited.

Three crews, from Clacton and Weeley, attended the second time as the fire was taking over the majority of the property.

The Electricity Board were also in attendance and engineers had to isolate power to the property.

A joint police and fire service investigation is now underway.
