FIREFIGHTERS had a busy Saturday evening putting out a series of small blazes across Suffolk.
At 5.18pm yesterday, a crew from Woodbridge was called to a car fire in Bury Hill Close, Melton. They brought the flames under control using one hose.
As that fire was extinguished another was reported in Wiston Road, Nayland, this time involving the chimney of a property.
A crew from Colchester used chimney gear to quell the flames.
Later, at 7.21pm, a bonfire was reported to be out of control in The Street, Nacton. An Ipswich crew arrived to find the flames had spread to a fence and nearby trees, but they were able to prevent more damage using a single hose.
At the same time Lowestoft firefighters were busy putting out a bin fire in Hall Road, Carlton Colville, again using a single hose.
Two fires were later reported in the open. First in Beaconsfield Road, Lowestoft, at 7.48pm, and then in Bobbits Lane, Ipswich, at 9.18pm. Local crews responded and extinguished both fires.
