Firefighters from across Suffolk were called to a blaze in the village of Lindsey Tye, near Hadleigh.

Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service was alerted shortly before 11pm last night to reports of a house alight in Frogs Hall Road.

A fire crew remained at the scene this morning, after the flames were finally brought under control and the incident ‘stop message’ called just before 4.45am.

A spokeswoman from the fire service said that no-one had been reported injured, trapped inside or missing, and said there were no dangerous or toxic substances involved.

In total, 14 vehicles attended the scene from stations in Ipswich, Newmarket, Hadleigh, Sudbury, Long Melford, Haverhill, Holbrook, Clare, Needham Market and Ixworth.

The aerial ladder platform from Ipswich East station was sent to the scene with six fire engines, a water carrier, a command unit and two supporting appliances.

A Suffolk police spokeswoman said officers were at the scene assisting with a road closure while firefighters worked to tackle the flames, which were fully under control by 4.45am.
