Two fire engines were called to a huge fire in Hadleigh which left a garage completely destroyed.

On Saturday, January 19 at 3pm fire crews were called to Lady Lane in Hadleigh after a building was reported to be on fire.

Students Seb Franklin and Tom Johnston, both aged 16, were walking around their home village taking photos for their photography project when they saw some smoke in the distance.

The pair headed to the scene to investigate to find a garage burning down and multiple firemen tackling the blaze.

Seb said: “When we arrived at 3.15pm there was huge amounts of smoke coming from the garage.

According to the photography student, the fire teams spent about an hour battling the smoke before packing up and leaving around 4pm.

“Upon crews arrival they found a brick garage building well alight – the crews worked hard to get the fire under control, and used three hose reels, two sets of breathing apparatus and a jet to extinguish the fire.”
