Fire crews tackle shed fire
FIREFIGHTERS are today tackling a shed which went up in flames in a residential area of Ipswich.
FIREFIGHTERS tackling a burning shed in Ipswich had to take cover when a gas cylinder exploded.
The blaze took hold in a garden in Philip Road at around 1pm and spread to another shed and surrounding trees.
Andy Hollis, who lives close by, said a propane gas cylinder blew up in the flames.
He added: “I heard weird noises, looked out of my window and it was smoky. I saw the fire and phoned the fire service but they had already been called. A gas cylinder exploded and I had to duck down.”
The fire was contained but it is understood one of the sheds was totally destroyed.
