FIRE crews were called to deal with an area of undergrowth on fire in Foxhall Road in Kesgrave last night.

Emergency services received several calls about the fire at around 7.55pm yesterday.

Crews from Ipswich arrived on scene at 8.05pm and requested a further appliance for water.

An appliance from Princes Street was mobilised and at 8.26pm crews advised fire control that an area of undergrowth measuring 20m x 30m was on fire.

Access to the fire was difficult and crews were using beaters and a water backpack to extinguish the fire.

Crews brought the fire under control 8.40pm.

The fire was started deliberately.
