An investigation has been launched into the cause of a yard fire which damaged portacabins and vehicles.

The fire in Epping Road, Nazeing, was attended by fire crews from Epping, Harlow, Loughton, Old Harlow, Hoddeston, and Cheshunt.

A spokes person for Essex Fire and rescue said: "Firefighters were called to a yard fire in Nazeing.

"On arrival crews reported that the fire was rapidly spreading to surrounding portacabins and vehicles.

"Crews worked extremely hard in very hot conditions to bring the fire under control and extinguished it by 8.30pm. They then stayed on the site for some time to dampen down the area."
