A DOG has died following a blaze at an Ipswich home today.

Flames took hold in the ground floor of an end-of-terrace property in Bramford Road, Ipswich at about 2.48pm.

Three fire crews attended the scene and four firefighters wearing breathing apparatus searched the smoke filled house.

Nobody was inside although the firefighters discovered a dog in the kitchen which had died as a result of the blaze.

A spokeswoman for the fire service said the alarm was raised by a passer-by who spotted smoke coming from an upstairs window.

“The crews used thermal imaging equipment to search the property and all persons were accounted for,” she said.
