Another suspected arson attack at car showroom in Little Thurrock

CREWS were called to tackle a blaze at a car showroom. Firefighters arriving at the scene reported that the incident involved several vehicles which were 100 per cent alight.

Crews wearing breathing apparatus used two hose reels and one main jet to extinguish the fire, which was out by 04:03 hrs. They then used a high pressure fan to clear the area of smoke.

Initially two appliances were sent to the scene. The incident commander requested a third at 03:39 hrs for extra water and manpower.

A joint Police and Fire Service investigation will be carried out to establish the cause of the incident, which is thought to be suspicious.
