Playford: Firefighters tackle serious chimney blaze
FIRE crews have been tackling a chimney fire in Playford, near Ipswich.
It broke out at around 7.30pm this evening at an address in Brook Lane.
The first firefighters on scene had to request back-up from the turntable ladder due to difficult access to the chimney, and at one point, smoke started filling the loft space of a neighbouring property.
Earlier, there was another chimney fire in Norwich Road, Little Stonham. It started just after 4pm but was brought under control within 45 minutes using chimney rods.
