Three vans and one car, parked behind food stalls, were accidentally set alight at the 31st Festival of Cricket, at around 4.50pm on Sunday.
Firefighters removed a number of cylinders from the area that were at risk of exploding due to the heat.
Thousands of people were escorted to a safe distance prior to the arrival and six fire engines and 40 firefighters.
Fortunately, there were no reported injuries.
The blaze was brought under control by around 6.10pm that same evening.Tags: Redbridge, Ilford, Hainault
