Detectives are treating a fire at an address in Leigh-on-Sea this morning as arson.
We were called at 4am this morning to reports of a fire which damaged the front door of an address in Eastwood Road.
We believe it was started deliberately and are treating it as arson.
We also believe this is a targeted attack and through our initial inquiries we believe it is linked to an incident earlier in the night at the Woodcutters Arms where a fight broke out involving a number of people.
This happened shortly before 11.50pm last night (Friday 18 August).
If you have any information, CCTV, dash cam or other footage in relation to this incident, then please get in contact with us.
Please incident 205 of 19 August.
You can let us know by submitting a report on our website or by using our online Live Chat service available Monday to Friday (excluding public holidays) between 10am-9pm.
