Firefighters took three hours to bring a blaze under control at a flat where there was a suspected gas leak.
Three appliances from Lowestoft South, one from Lowestoft North, an appliance from Beccles and the Command Unit, and a Great Yarmouth crew attended the incident in High Street, Lowestoft, at 9pm last night.
Crews arrived on scene to a fire in a first floor flat of a three storey building.
A gas leak inside was also reported and engineers from Transco also attended.
Eight firefighters wearing breathing apparatus used three water jets to extinguish the fire, which was brought under control just before midnight.
Elsewhere, a crew from Needham Market dealt with a car fire in the town’s Ranson Road. They were called at 4am today and were back at base by 4.48am.
