Firefighters rescued two people from a house fire in Felixstowe

Two people had to be rescued from a burning building in Felixstowe in the early hours of this morning.

Fire crews from Felixstowe and Ipswich East were called to a house in Graham Road just before 1am.

A concerned neighbour dialled 999 when they heard the smoke alarm sounding next door.

According to Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service, the caller could see flames and did not know if there was anyone inside.

Firefighters rescued two people from the property and gave them first aid until the ambulance arrived. Both were suffering the effects of smoke inhalation.

The fire was brought under control just before 1.30am.
