Firefighters in Essex are continuing to investigate the cause of a house fire that started in Flitch Green last night.

Essex Fire and Rescue Service was alerted at 8.47pm to reports of a house on fire in Ranulf Road.

A crew from Chelmsford and a crew from Thaxted attended to find a blaze in the kitchen, with the entire house smoke-logged.

Firefighters worked quickly to put out the flames by 9.30pm.

A fire service spokesman said: “The kitchen suffered smoke, heat and fire damage and the house has suffered smoke damage.”

It has not been established what caused the blaze as yet and investigations are continuing.

An East of England Ambulance Service spokesman said a community first responder and ambulance crew attended at around 10.30pm to treat a woman, believed to in her 40s, for chest pains.

She was conscious and breathing, but taken to Chelmsford’s Broomfield Hospital for further care.
