FIRE Crews tackled a bungalow fire in Nazeing this evening and managed to stop it from spreading to nearby properties.
They were called to reports of a fire in Epping Road today at 5.48pm.
Crews from Harlow, Loughton, Waltham Abbey, Epping, Cheshunt and Bishop’s Stortford attended, along with the Incident Command Unit from Witham.
Station Manager Dave Bond said: “Crews were faced with a well-developed fire affecting a bungalow and adjoining outbuilding, which was close to a number of other properties.
“Firefighters worked incredibly hard in tough conditions to stop the fire from spreading, protect nearby buildings and extinguish it.”
The fire was fully extinguished by 7.40pm. Two crews will remain at the scene into the evening to dampen down and check for hotspots.
An investigation will be carried out to establish the cause of the fire.
