Lowestoft: Flames engulf first floor flat

A BLAZE engulfed the first floor of a Suffolk terraced property.

Four fire crews were sent to the incident in High Street, Lowestoft, shortly after 2.50am today.

Initial reports suggested that a number of people could have been inside the property, but a spokesperson for the fire service said that this was due to it being a block of flats.

The first floor flat of the three storey property was found to be well alight and crews used two door enforcers to enter the property.

After searching the building, all people were finally accounted for.
