Firefighters are currently tackling a blaze in Rainham. 

Six fire engines and 40 firefighters were called to the scene in Launders Lane at 7.15am this morning, although local residents say they could smell smoke much earlier in the morning.

Around 20 hectares of rubbish, grass, and shrubland are alight and crews are tackling multiple seats of fire. 

Station Commander Gary Brown said: “Firefighters are working hard to bring the fire under control. There are deep-seated pockets of fire in the undergrowth and it’s likely that crews will remain on scene for a number of hours.

“Launders Lane is closed to traffic and we encourage motorists to avoid the area.”
