19:56 07 January 2016
A 200 metre exclusion zone was put in place in Wetherden today while fire crews tackled a shed fire.
Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service was called to the blaze, in Upper Town, at 1.57pm.
Crews from Elmswell, Stowmarket and Needham Market attended the blaze.
The fire spread from a steel framed shed to two cars, another shed and caused external fire damage to two houses.
A spokesman for the fire service said the exclusion zone was in place because Acetylene was believed to be in one of the sheds.
Crews used four hose reels, two jets and foam to extinguish the fire.
Crews had left the scene by 4.12pm.
