A HUGE fire tore through heathland in Suffolk last night - and you were there to capture the drama on camera.

Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service started receiving calls about the massive blaze shortly after 9.30pm last night and a total of eight pumps were sent to the scene on Martlesham Heath, off Dobbs Lane.

At its height, the blaze covered two hectares of heathland and ten nearby homes in The Oaks were evacuated due to the intense smoke generated.

Your pictures of the event can be seen in this gallery, and we want more.

If you took pictures or video of the blaze, send it to us at web@eveningstar.co.uk.
