Firefighters tackled a blaze at a timber yard in Ipswich on Monday afternoon.
Fire crews were called to the scene just off Landseer Road close to the River Orwell at around 3.07pm.
Two fire engines from Ipswich - one from Princes Street fire station and the other from Ipswich East - were quickly dispatched to the scene of the fire.
A spokeswoman for the Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service said when the first crew arrived at the scene they were faced by four small fires.
She said: “There were four separate fires in a timber yard in four piles of timber.
“We had one engine arrive at the scene first after we got the call at 3.07pm.
“They wanted a second engine sent because they needed more water.”
She said the fires were quickly put out and that both fire crews were back at their bases by 3.55pm.
