Multiple firefighters tackle Great Cornard house blaze

Fire crews tackle blaze in house

Fire crews tackle blaze in house

Four fire crews from Essex and Suffolk went to a house blaze in Great Cornard this afternoon.

Emergency teams were sent to Raydon Way at 12.01pm.

The first Sudbury crew on scene immediately called for back-up, with firefighters from Halstead, Hadleigh and Ixworth also attending.

Firefighters wore breathing apparatus as they tackled the blaze on the ground floor of the end-of-terrace home, which was also heavily smoke-logged.

The fire was out by 1.20pm, with crews remaining on scene for 40 minutes damping down.

  • It is interesting that the second Sudbury fire engine was not used- does that mean there were not enough retained fire fighters to man this (under threat) machine ?
