Two fire engines from Princes Street and another from Ipswich East were sent out to a fire in a laundrette last night.

The first fire crew was called at 10.22pm to the incident in Sheldrake Drive, Ipswich after reports of an alarm sounding.

On arrival they requested a second appliance attended to assist them, which was also from Princes Street.

Crews wearing breathing apparatus used one hose reel to fight the fire but requested a third appliance from Ipswich East because of heavy smoke logging.

This crew provided positive pressure ventilation (PPV) to clear the smoke.

The fire was under control by 11.32pm.
