Firefighters were called to a garage fire in Little Bardfield Road this afternoon (Monday 11 June) after a neighbour saw smoke and called 999.

When fire crews arrived they reported that the large two storey double garage and three vehicles were completely alight. Crews took extra care to protect nearby heating oil tanks by cooling them with water.

Fire crews worked hard to extinguish the fire and managed to stop it spreading to a nearby thatched barn. The fire was extinguished by 3.55pm.

The cause of the fire was found to be a fridge freezer inside the garage. The garage and three cars have been completely destroyed.

Crews from Newport, Saffron Walden and Stansted attended.
