FIRE fighters were scrambled to a house blaze in south-east Ipswich on Saturday afternoon.

A neighbour raised the alarm around 2.30pm after hearing a smoke detector and seeing smoke coming from the letterbox of a home in Romney Road.

Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service said a small blaze was discovered in the kitchen.

Crews - from Ipswich East and Princes Street - put out the fire using a hose reel.

They left the scene shortly after 3pm.
