Blaze at Southend seafront take-away

Southend Standard: Photography by Steven Power of  www.thorpe-bay-gallery.com Photography by Steven Power of www.thorpe-bay-gallery.com

FIREFIGHTERS tackled a blaze at the Las Vegas Grill chip shop on Southend seafront.

Crews were called at about 8.10pm last night to a fire started by a faulty tumble drier in a room above the shop.

The chip shop was affected by water and smoke damage.

The fire was first tackled by crews using a ladder until the owner of the building arrived and opened the shutters allowing firefighters inside.

An Essex Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said: "Crews wearing breathing apparatus entered the shop and using one hose reel jet and one dry powder fire extinguisher had extinguished the fire by 8.36pm.

"They then used a positive pressure fan to ventilate the property."

Really, well in this modern day and age, the day of these greasy spoon chip shops are numbered, thank god. Most don't display food hygiene certificates, for the very reason they fall below par of acceptable levels of cleanliness

If you don't like fish n' chips, fine, but stop bleating and moaning about it on here. So some food isn't particularly healthy, but that doesn't mean it can't be enjoyed as an occasional treat.

Keep your Gilian McKeith worshipping, mung bean-eating, excrement sniffing fantasies to yourself!

You are talking about 2 completely different issues! You might be able to 'buy' a level 2 hygiene certificate, but the certificates that these restaurants apparently don't display are awarded to them after regular visits by the councils health & hygiene officers. So again making comments when you don't know what you are talking about. This is people's livelihoods you are commenting on & you obviously haven't got a clue.

Fish and chips are nice but to expensive, if they were cheaper I think more people would get them regularly. Fish and chips are getting battered (literately) by other sections of the fast food industry - indian/chinese even a big KFC bucket is cheaper than 2 x cod and chips. Its no wonder chicken tikka masala has the no1 spot.

Pizzas are the biggest culprit for bring over priced, dominos and pizza hut, its no wonder the have the funds to do so much TV and other advertising. Its can cost close to £40 for two pizzas!
100% agree with the Pizza thing way over priced, lets face it the 'chains' can give you another one free and still be having a good profit....total rip off prices.

Ok some of the puns are funny, but lets not get sidetracked. There was a fire, the business has been damaged, maybe spare a thought for the business owners and employees? Independant shops are few and far between. Their position on the seafront is also tough considering we are in winter. I just hope that no one was hurt and that the cost to refurbish is not too high that we end up losing yet another business. I have been there and I have to say it is clean and in no way a grease fest. Fish and Chips is one of our nations favourites.

If it was going to happen this could well be the best time so on a scale of things it might be a blessing in disguise, Insurance should be cool and a minor refit in order...fresh for when the weather improves and millions flock to the seafront.
Got to look at the tumble dryer thing...do people live above or had someone left it on and forgot about it.

Clearly no one has had a fire that could potentially destroy their business otherwise you wouldn't be writing such stupid comments. It must be so hard to keep a small business going in times like this, maybe they should shut and go on the dole like most of you people. Luckily this business seems to have some lovely customers that support them, hopefully they will be opening again very soon.

I don't think it will destroy their business, they will have insurance taking care of things as we type, look at Jefferies that was in Hamlet Crt Rd...that place got really burnt out, they moved on and was up and running in no time elsewhere in the town, its a Fish shop on a seafront they can't really go wrong and as you say they will be open again as soon as possible, and the 'stupid comments' are just some lighthearted puns, there is a differance.

So again making comments when you don't know what you are talking about. This is people's livelihoods you are commenting on & you obviously haven't got a clue.
The rating is 4 (out of 5)...which is Good, last inspected Feb 2013 according to scores on the doors.....you say Regular visits..? not sure how regular you mean.

Consequently due to the falling customer numbers, and location, the health side has suffered, in so far as less frequent renewal of the frying oils, and general upkeep of the premises, resulting in a few hard core chippy dwellers keeping them open.
Had these takeaways been

Have you seen baileys fish and chip shop at the moment all boarded up sign smashed up Don't know how they get the customers to go in there but people do. Also £50 buys you level 2 Hygiene certificate Meets UK / EU Legal requirements with out doing the course.
You are talking about 2 completely different issues! You might be able to 'buy' a level 2 hygiene certificate, but the certificates that these restaurants apparently don't display are awarded to them after regular visits by the councils health & hygiene officers. So again making comments when you don't know what you are talking about. This is people's livelihoods you are commenting on & you obviously haven't got a clue.
Mr brittania man, you must be quite jealous of us seafront traders who work extremely hard to make money when we can to keep our mortgages families afloat not just in the summer but through the winter when there is no trade! And as a trader myself we all make sure our businesses are up to scratch because we appreciate trippers coming back year after year. I can only think that you putting all the crap online as you are must be a very sad individual! I would love to know how you come to this conclusion and pray tell the evidence that u have to discredit us traders! Look forward to your comments

Look i only made two comments one that i said clarks needed a refurbish.

My comments must of come to some truth and jealous far from it i understand Bailys must be your Business that your defending and i respect that the only thing i'm jealous about if this was my business in Camden i would have to close up until the repairs was done. Also i don't come to southend much but when i was contracted to there me and work friend parked in the car park across the road thought we get some chips. We spoke to some locals out side who told us the family who used to own Baily's don't own it any more and they told us to walk up to clark's. We ended up walking out of there and tell truth i was not aware they had been flooded out that might of been the reason it did not look so good.
Also i have a good friend who is a big trader on southend seafront. I know its hard times through the winter but i still think a lot of the business along the seafront on that side of the road could do with a refurbishment paint new floors carpets not just saying the fish and chip shops.

If it was going to happen this could well be the best time so on a scale of things it might be a blessing in disguise, Insurance should be cool and a minor refit in order...fresh for when the weather improves and millions flock to the seafront.

I also trade as fish and chips along the front and no it's not baileys, and going past their shop today it appears they have had to have no windows....it is extremely hard to keep the traditional fish and chip shops when we get mocked when accidents happen and think it's done for reasons to get insurance money.

Its no wonder chicken tikka masala has the no1 spot.
Good they ain't cheaper. Enough fat people in Southend as it is.
