Firefighters have scaled down their work at the scene of the cooking oil blaze this morning that gutted a storage yard in Little Warley.
Fire crews from Romford, Harold Hill and Hornchurch were among the emergency services battling the fire blaze in Little Warley Hall Lane between 5.15am and 10am.
Essex Fire Brigade crews stayed until the blaze was totally extinguished at about 11.30am.
There are now three pumps left at the scene, turning over and damping down the debris to make sure no pockets of heat remained that could reignite.
Police and fire services are carrying out an investigation into the cause of the inferno.
