Chelmsford Fire

Lots of black smoke coming up from west Chelmsford/Writtle direction.
Anyone see anything?

Tyres on fire?


Joeva Report 8 Jun 2013 13:32

Thanks maggiewinchester :-)

My son and family live in the area indicated by BrianW and they are away for the weekend, so it's a relief to hear it isn't a house fire.

Looks like that may well be it.
Thanks for the link, I'll put it in Favourites.

Could it be that someone was having a Large Barbeque. :-D

They do have big barbecues in Essex or so I heard.
Or something like that.
