FIRE crews tackled two fires in Purfleet on Saturday afternoon.
Crews from Grays were called to a machinery fire at Foster Yeoman, in Jurgens Road, at about 12.15pm.
Half an hour later, crews from Orsett and Wennington, attended a small fire in an industrial unit, in Juliette Way.
An Essex County Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said: “All fuels were isolated (at Foster Yeoman) while firefighters dealt with the incident.
“The fire was put out just before 1pm and cooling fans were used as crews stood by to make sure the area remained safe.”
In Juliette Way, the flames in a unit used by a reconditioning firm were put out within 15minutes.
