A man in his 80s died in hospital after being rescued from the blaze in Fuchsia Lane at around 1.15am on March 30.

His heart was restarted by firefighters and paramedics after suffering a cardiac arrest but died at Ipswich Hospital later that morning.

Another man found in the property, aged in his 60s, also suffered serious injuries in the blaze. But he has since been released from Broomfield Hospital in Chelmsford.

“Police believe he may have information that can assist the enquiry and are asking him, or anyone who knows who he is to come forward.”
