One person was rescued from a fire in a house in Braeburn Close near Woodbridge Road on the eastern side of Ipswich late on Sunday night.

Four fire appliances from the Princes Street and Ipswich East fire stations were called to the fire at about 11.30pm on Sunday evening.

There were reports that someone was trapped in the house, but firefighters found the occupant who was taken out of the building and did not seem to the injured.

Police and ambulance teams were also called to the incident but it soon emerged that it was not such a serious incident as had been feared at first.

A police spokesman said initial investigations suggested there was nothing suspicious about the blaze and fire crews started to leave the scene shortly after midnight.
