ARSONISTS are today thought to be behind two suspicious fires in Suffolk after blazes broke out at unoccupied buildings in Ipswich and Stowmarket.

A severe blow was dealt to the fund raising efforts of an Ipswich charity shop when a fire took hold. Crews from Ipswich and Felixstowe attended the Salvation Army Charity shop in Upper Orwell Street at 5.20am yesterday.

And shortly after 11pm a derelict building in Stowmarket went up in flames.

The two-storey property in Crowe Street, behind the Meadow Shopping Centre, was boarded up this morning with police and fire tape sealing it off.

Full storey coming later.
