FIRE crews tackled a blaze at a house on Brentwood Road, Bulphan, this morning.

The fire started in the garage adjoining the detached property around 9.40am, where it then spread to the house.

Four crews from Grays and Orsett attended the scene, when upon arrival the incident commander reported that the garage was 100 percent alight.

The crews used three hose reel jets and three main jets to tackle the fire, which was extinguished by 11.17am.

An investigation will be carried out to establish the cause of the fire.
