Thank you for your request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. I can confirm that Essex County Fire & Rescue Service does hold this information. Please see below the answer to your request.

Initial Request:

I would like to have data on the number of fires your forces attended where the ignition source of the fire is recorded as 'white goods'.

Where white goods are appliances like fridges, washing machines, tumble dryers, dishwashers, refrigerators, freezers, kettles, coffee machines etc).

I need to have the table in an excel format and broken down by local authority area for the last two financial years (2017/18 and 2016/17).

Where possible, can you please provide me also with details on the fire (for example, how it happened, where, damage caused etc).

Final Response:

Please see attached excel spreadsheet containing data requested.
