Two people are being treated for smoke inhalation after a house fire.

Suffolk firefighters were called to North Drive, Hepworth at 8.45am following the blaze.

The fire was out when the teams from Bury St Edmunds and Norfolk arrived, so crews damped down hot spots and isolated the electricity supply.

A spokesman for the fire service said: "All persons were accounted for, with two people being treated on scene for smoke inhalation and left in the care of the ambulance service."

Paramedics from the East of England Ambulance NHS Trust also attended and officers from Suffolk police were called but did not attend. 

A stop was put on the incident at 9.34am.
