Newmarket: Fire in block of flats

FIRE crews smashed their way into an office block’s lift room to put out a small blaze.

They were called to the two-storey building in The Oaks, Fordham Road, Newmarket, after burning was smelt around 6am.

Crews were unable to contact the occupier of the block so had to gain entry themselves. They found a small fire in the lift room, which was extinguished by 7am.
