ESSEX Firefighters were called to a fire in a first floor maisonette flat at Willowfield in Harlow this afternoon (Monday 30 April).

When firefighters arrived at the property they reported the fire was in the loft area of the property. All the residents had been safely evacuated before crews got to the scene.

Firefighters extinguished the fire at 2:35pm.

Three flats were affected by the fire. The flat where the fire started has suffered fire damage, the flat next door was also affected, and the flat below has suffered some water damage.

The cause of the fire was recorded as accidental, due to work being carried out on the boiler.

A Harlow Council spokesperson said: “We are sorry to hear about this incident and we are providing housing support to residents whose homes have been affected by the fire. Housing officers will continue to stay in contact with each family to provide support and assistance as required.”
