Jaywick: Kitchen fire

THREE fire crews were called to deal with a blaze in Jaywick this evening.

Essex Fire and Rescue Service received a call just before 6.20pm reporting a kitchen fire at the property in Broadlands Gardens.

A fire alarm had sounded and smoke was seen issuing from the bungalow. It was also reported that a man was asleep on the sofa inside and couldn’t be woken.

Two crews from Clacton and one from Weely arrived at the scene to find that the fire was already out. The man inside was not hurt and did not want to leave the bungalow.

A high pressure fan was used to clear the property of smoke, and fire crews left the scene just after 6.45pm.
