AN arson probe is under way today after a sofa fire in an Ipswich street spread to a nearby house.

Two fire crews were called to Kenyon Street, off Wherstead Road, at just after 10pm yesterday.

A pair of settees waiting for collection had been set alight and the flames smashed a window of a nearby end-terrace home, spreading the blaze into the front room.

Police officers were called as the fire was believed to have been started deliberately.
