A large amount of smoke was seen coming from an Ipswich house after a fire broke out at 5am.
Suffolk Fire and Rescue teams were called to the two-storey property in Burrell Road, near the Princes Street bridge, early in the morning on Monday, May 31.
Five crews from Colchester, Ipswich and Princes Street fire stations extinguished the blaze and checked the house, leaving the scene at 6am.
Suffolk police had earlier closed the road, after they were called at 5.14am, but it has since reopened.
All occupants of the house have been accounted for.
UK Power Networks also attended the scene to isolate the electricity supply, so the fire service and police could work safely.
