Fire crews tackled a barn fire in west Suffolk earlier this evening.
Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service received reports of the blaze in Lower Street, Somerton, just before 5.45pm.
Two crews were initially sent to the scene and found the wooden barn fully alight before removing cylinders from the area.
Further appliances were sent from Wickhambrook, Bury St Edmunds, Halstead and Ixworth were then mobilised.
Firefighters, wearing breathing apparatus, used three hose reel jets to extinguish the flames before damping down and identifying hot spots.
