A blaze at a farm barn was tackled by firefighters in the mid-Suffolk countryside overnight.
Four fire engines were called out to the “large outbuilding fire” in The Street, Brundish shortly after 2.30am, a fire brigade spokesman said.
The barn collapsed at around 3.45am as crews used two hose reel jets and two main jets to put out the fire.
The fire was put out and under control at around 5am.
A Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said: “One appliance from Stradbroke fire station was mobilised to an initial call of a fire in the open.
“However on arrival the crew upgraded the incident to a large outbuilding fire and requested an additional fire appliance along with the assistance of the water carrier from Leiston.
“At 3.10am an additional fire appliance was requested to assist with water relay at the incident so along with Framlingham, Stradbroke and Leiston’s resources already attending, an additional appliance was requested from Harleston in Norfolk. Officers from both Suffolk and Norfolk were also mobilised to the incident.
“An informative received at 3:47am stated the outbuilding had collapsed due to the fire and the crews were using two hose reel jets and two main jets to extinguish the fire.”
A Suffolk Constabulary spokesman said officers did not attend the incident.
