Ipswich: Princes Street fire crews called out three times last night to fires in the town

18:51 23 February 2014


Firefighters were called out to three incidents in Ipswich last night.

The first incident happened in Kelly Road on Saturday at about 10.10pm with two crews attending from Princes Street.

A fire on the ground floor was extinguished within half an hour by two firefighters wearing breathing apparatus and using a hose reel.

This is being investigated by police as the fire is of a suspicious nature.

The second incident saw two crews, again from Princes Street, tackling a blaze in London Road.

Two firefighters wearing breathing apparatus used a hose reel and a covering jet to bring the incident under control by 11.23.

At 4.34am on Sunday two crews from Princes Street attended a third incident, this time in All Saints Road.

They found the fire was already out when they arrived and made the house safe.
