FIREFIGHTERS rushed to a chip shop after a blaze broke out.
Crews from Southend and Shoebury were called to Kingfisher on Southchurch Boulevard, Southend, at around 12.10am today.
It is thought an appliance in the kitchen has caught alight whilst the business was closed.
The owner was able to get inside and begin putting the flames out before the firefighters arrived.
The chip shop was heavily smoke logged.
Firefighters wore breathing apparatus and used one hose reel to extinguish the blaze within 20 minutes.
