Firefighters were called to Ravenswood and Wilberforce Street.

Firefighters in Ipswich had a busy overnight Friday to Saturday, with four call-outs to residential areas of the town.

There were two calls to the Ravenswood Avenue within 20 minutes on Friday evening where there were two separate incidents of rubbish bins catching fire in bin stores next to homes.

One of the crews then attended another similar fire at Chaser Close, a short distance away. The first call was at 9.30pm on Friday, and all the appliances were back at their base at Ransomes by 11pm.

Two crews from the Princes Street fire station in Ipswich town centre were called to a shed fire in Wilberforce Street shortly before 2.30am on Saturday morning. It took them just over an hour to put the blaze out and return to their station.

No one was hurt in any of the incidents.
