Emergency services rushed to the scene of a fire scare at a block of flats on Ipswich Waterfront this evening.
Firefighters were called at shortly before 10pm tonight to investigate a possible blaze at a high rise building in Ipswich.
A total of eight engines rushed to the scene at Zephyr Court, on Barnard Square, after somebody reported a smell of burning in the stairwell.
A spokesperson for Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service said the incident was a “false alarm”.
She said: “Someone thought they could smell burning in the stairwell. Multiple vehicles attended and carried out a thorough inspection but no fire was found.”
A stop was called on the operation at just before 10.20pm.
