Plastic flower pot leads to 999 call

A SMALL fire in a plastic flower pot containing an incense stick led to fire crews being called out to Needham Market early today.

Firefighters from Stowmarket and Needham Market were sent to a house in Crowley Road just after 1.15am.

They had been called after a smell of burning was reported.

Elsewhere fire crews from Hadleigh and Ipswich went to a house in Canterbury Gardens in Hadleigh at 5.45am.

Although someone had called the fire service to say they could smell burning, firefighters said it was a false alarm.
