A victim support vehicle has been called to the scene of a bungalow fire in Suffolk.

Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS) was alerted to the fire in Duke Street, Hintlesham, just before 5.30am this morning.

Crews from Hadleigh and Princes Street in Ipswich attended the blaze, which was reported to have started in the kitchen.

Firefighters entered the burning building to tackle the fire and isolate the gas and electricity supply. A fan was also used to ventilate the bungalow.

A spokesman for SFRS said the Red Cross Victim Support Vehicle had also been called in from Felixstowe. The vehicle is used to provide practical help and emotional support to people affected by fires, floods and other emergency incidents.

The spokesman added that “there were no casualties”.

The bungalow fire was reported to have been put out by 6.05am.
