Firefighters were called to a kitchen fire in Tillingham last night.

The fire was reported just before 9pm at a house in Mill Road, Tillingham, where crews - one from Burnham and one from South Woodham Ferrers - reported that the kitchen was partially smoke-logged.

Firemen wore breathing apparatus, used one hose reel and a thermal image camera to check for any remaining hot spots.

The incident was dealt with by 9.30pm.
