Martlesham: Heath fires carry on after massive blaze

FIREFIGHTERS were called out to reports of heath fires today following a huge blaze.

Crews from Colchester Road were called out at 12.50am today to Eagle Way in Martlesham to a 20 square metre area well alight, and put out the flames by 2.30am.

But at 10.30am, another call came in from nearby Heathfields of a small area of heath alight.

These come after a massive heath blaze yesterday which needed six fire pumps and a water bowser to get the flames under control.
