2:10pm Thursday 17th October 2013 in News
FIREFIGHTERS have launched an investigation after the front door of a house in Clacton was set alight.
Three crews from Clacton and Weeley were called to Hayes Road to tackle the door blaze just after 3.30am this morning.
The fire was out when the firefighters arrived at the scene, but crews moved quickly to clear the house of smoke using a high-pressure fan.
One woman, who was in the house when the fire started, suffered smoke inhalation and had to be treated at the scene by paramedics.
The incident was dealt with by 3.50am and a fire investigation has now been launched to establish the cause of the fire.
