The Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service was called to the scene of the fire in Goldsmith Road around 8.10pm Tuesday, May 26.

One fire engine was sent to tackle the blaze, although a second was mobilised due to the fact “a lot of black smoke had been seen in the distance”, a spokesman said.

On arrival, the crews found four sheds and fencing “well alight”.

Crews used three hose reels and a 45ml jet to extinguish the flames, before a thermal imaging camera was used to check for hotspots.
