Ipswich: Firefighters tackle Christmas Eve bedroom fire

Two fire crews were called to a bedroom blaze at an address in Ipswich last night.

It broke out in Fitzwilliam Close just before 11pm, and appliances from Ipswich East and Princes Street stations were sent.

Everyone was accounted for when they arrived, and the crews used breathing apparatus, hose reel jets and one covering jet to extinguish the fire which was located in an upstairs room.

Once extinguished the crews damped down the surrounding area and checked for hot spots. The Fire Emergency Support Unit also attended the incident to offer support to the occupants.
