Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service have tackled fires across the county today.
The fire service has responded to a number of call-outs today, including a car fire on the A14 westbound just after the Orwell Bridge.
Two fire crews were sent to the scene of the BMW fire just after 3pm and used two breathing apparatus and one hose reel to extinguish the blaze.
A spokeswoman for Suffolk police said there were tailbacks, but they cleared quickly, and added nobody was hurt in the fire.
In Otley, 50 metres of hedgerow, a car and small derelict shed were alight in Church Road.
One fire appliance was sent to the scene after they were called at 1.33pm and firefighters had it under control within an hour.
In Beccles there was a fire in about one acre of gorse land at Common Lane at 1.30pm.
After assessing the situation it was felt another crew and a specialist vehicle were needed.
After tackling the fire crews stayed on for another 30 minutes for damping down.
