Three people were taken to hospital after being hurt in what is believed to have been an "explosion" at a pub near Sudbury.
Emergency services were called to reports of a fire at the Kings Head, in Bures Road, Great Cornard, at 9.58pm on Saturday, April 24.
Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service dispatched two crews from Sudbury station to the scene.
A statement from Suffolk police released afterwards said: "It is believed the fire was the result of an explosion involving a small camping stove."
Three people were taken to hospital to be treated for injuries and police were still on the scene in the early hours of the morning.
A police cordon was put in place in the pub's beer garden to the rear of the property while officers conducted an investigation.
The Kings Head is a Greene King-licensed pub on the B1508 leading into Sudbury, close to the River Stour.
