Fire crews battle blazes across East Tilbury

EIGHT fire crews have been dealing with a field fire in Buckingham Hill Road, Linford, this afternoon.

A 200 metre square area of land was affected with firefighters working hard in difficult terrain to stop the spread of the fire.

Station Manager Dan Kirk said: “It was a challenging area to access but once again our firefighters worked incredibly hard and contained the fire. They did a great job.”

Please continue to help our crews by being wildfire aware during this long spell of hot dry weather.

You can help prevent fires and support our firefighters by:

Not having bonfires or campfires
No barbecues
Making sure cigarettes are put out properly
Taking litter home with you, especially glass
