Ferocious fire tears through historic cottage as dozen fire crews battle flames

Daily Express says A FEROCIOUS fire has torn through a historic thatched cottage this morning, causing “extensive damage”.

Some 12 fire crews battled the flames at the historic property in Braintree, Essex, after it caught fire at around midnight. Firefighters have remained at the scene overnight and say there has been “extensive damage” to the cottage.

It’s unclear what caused the blaze at this stage.

A full investigation into what happened will now take place, Essex Live reports.

Station Manager Howard Midwood said: “Sadly there has been extensive damage to an historical thatched cottage but thanks to the skill and professionalism of the firefighters, the fire was stopped from spreading to the neighbouring properties and as many personal possessions as possible could be saved from inside.
