10:04pm Wednesday 17th October 2012 in News
FIRE chiefs are treating as arson a blaze in Rowhedge this morning.
Two crews from Colchester and one from Manningtree were called to the docks, in Rowhedge shortly after 8.20am, where a large pile of rubbish was alight.
Crews from Colchester could not reach the blaze so an off road engine, from Manningtree, was called.
The fire was extinguished by 10.25am.
A spokesman said: "The fire is believed to have been started deliberately."
