Six ponies were rescued from a "large" blaze on a farm in west Suffolk last night.
A total of 12 crews from Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service were called to Great Wilsey Farm in Haverhill Road, Little Wratting, at 4.33pm and had the blaze under control by 7:30pm.
Two engines remained at the scene overnight to deal with fire hotspots, and were still there this morning at 8am.
The ponies are safe and well and a fire investigation is set to get underway today with a view to uncovering the cause of the blaze.
The 12 crews of firefighters were dispatched from Cambridge, Woodbridge, Sudbury, Long Melford, Clare, Haverhill, Wickhambrook, Bury St Edmunds Ixworth, Brandon and Newmarket along with one support vehicle and a water carrier.
A spokesman for the fire service confirmed the fire measured 30m by 15m and that there were no reports of any casualties or people involved.
