A KITCHEN has been destroyed after unattended cooking caught fire.

Two fire crews from Grays were called to the fire on London Road, Grays, at 6.40pm and spent half an hour tackling the flames and ensuring they were fully out.

The resident had left the cooker on unattended, leading to a fire which quickly consumed the room.

Although there was great material damage to the room, no-one was hurt in the incident.
