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:

Could we have April 18 to end of Mar 19 and April 19 to end of March 20.

As background information we have particular interest in those deaths caused by cigarettes as we are looking at increasing Well Homes emphasis on smoking cessation in the borough.

Could you point me in the right direction within the fire service for stats on:-

2. A breakdown of the cause of the fire

3. A break of no’s into areas i.e. Grays, Tilbury, South Ockendon, East Tilbury, Chadwell, Purfleet, West Thurrock etc.

In response to the request above, we can confirm there have been no fire related deaths in residential properties in Thurrock during the specified time-period (or since 2014).
