The fire was extinguished before the brigade arrived, however there was one casualty with burns to hand who was attended to by the ambulance crew.

A spokesman for the East of England Ambulance Service Trust (EEAST) said an ambulance was sent to the address at 6.50pm and treated a man, believed to be in his 60s, after he suffered superficial burns to his hand.

The spokesman said: “We were able to treat him on scene and didn’t need to take him to hospital. We were able to leave him at home.”
