Two crews battled a house fire in Melton this afternoon after a blaze engulfed a garden fence and spread to a property.

Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service were called to reports of the building fire in Wilkinson Way, Melton, just after 1pm today.

Two crews, one from Ipswich East and a second from Woodbridge, were called to the house fire.

A spokesman for Suffolk Fire and Rescue said: “The fire started on a garden fence and spread to a two-storey detached house.

“The fire is understood to be contained in the first floor of the building, above the garage.”

A stop time was called on the fire at 1.48pm after the blaze was put out.

No one is known to have been in the property at the time of the fire.
