More than a dozen firefighters battled a blaze at a property in Haverhill.
The blaze started shortly after 2pm today, when flames took hold of the first floor in a two-storey, semi-detached house in Lulworth Drive.
Lee Wilkins, station commander, said roughly 15 firefighters were called to the scene to stop the blaze spreading any further.
He said nobody was injured in the incident, but there was significant damage caused to the first floor of the property.
“The guys worked really hard to get the fire under control quickly and stop the fire from spreading to neighbouring properties,” Mr Wilkins said.
