Essex: Woman suffers burns in house fire

A woman suffered burns during a fire at a home in Essex today.

Two fire engines from Chelmsford were called to the incident in Chelmer Avenue, Little Waltham, at 5.26pm.

Crews wearing breathing apparatus used one hose reel to extinguish the fire by 5.57pm.

The property was heavily smoke logged and crews used a high pressure fan to ventilate the house free of smoke.

One woman, approximately 40 years old, suffered from burns and fire crews administered first aid, before placing her in the care of the Ambulance Service.
