Crews were called to a thatched house fire in Newmarket last night.

At about 11pm fire control received numerous calls to a fire in Hamilton Road.

Several appliances from across the area were called for and arrived at the scene just before 11.10pm.

On arrival crews found a row of conifers between two thatched properties were well alight which had caused heat damage to one of the properties. Crews used hosereels and jets to bring the fire under control just after 11.50pm.

Two appliances and the water carrier from Newmarket attended along with the command unit and support pump from Ixworth and appliances from Burwell, Cottenham, Cambridge and Cambridge’s turntable ladder.
