FIREFIGHTERS were today scrambled to a kitchen fire in Colchester which was triggered by a dishwasher.
Two crews from Colchester were sent to the scene, in Causton Road, at 12.19am after a smoke detector alerted residents to the blaze.
A spokesman for Essex Fire and Rescue Service said it is believed a dishwasher started the fire.
Firefighters used one hose reel to put out the blaze, which was extinguished by 12.47am.
Once the fire was out, a high pressure fan was used to clear the two storey property of smoke.
