POWER lines around an industrial workshop had to be repaired after an electrical fire broke out in a Suffolk village.
Firefighters were called to the incident at 2.45pm this afternoon at a single-storey workshop in Swilland, north of Ipswich.
The fire had caused the roof and walls to become live before the fire service isolated the power at the property in High Road.
EDF Energy engineers were called out to repair a damaged overhead line at 3.06pm. They were on site by 4.15pm to isolate the power and make the scene safe.
A spokesperson for EDF said the incident had affected one property, and the customer had their own generator.
