Fire crews tackle series of blazes

FIRE crews in Ipswich and Felixstowe were in high demand as a series of fires broke out overnight.

Firefighters from Princes Street Fire Station were called to Wherstead Road, Ipswich, at just before 12.15am.

On arrival the crew found a wheelie bin which was deemed as “well alight” - the blaze had also spread to a number of surrounding bushes.

They used one hose to control the flames and the blaze was brought under control by 12.30am.

Meanwhile in Waldringfield, two crews from Felixstowe and Ipswich tackled another fire, which had engulfed a car in Waldringfield Road at around 1.15am.
