Four fire engines, police and an ambulance crew have been called to the scene of a blaze in Gazeley, near Newmarket in Suffolk.

Firefighters were sent to Mill Road in the village at 1.13pm today, following reports of a fire in the roof of a two-storey detached house.

Five crews were initially called but one was not required.

An ambulance crew is also at the scene, and police have closed the road to help firefighters tackle the blaze.

A Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said the fire has engulfed the roof of a building.

He said: "Four fire engines have arrived at the scene of a fire in Mill Road, Gazeley.

"They are tackling a roof fire in a detached property with two floors.

"Police and ambulance crews are also in attendance."

The spokesman added that the ambulance was called for one person who had sustained burns but that it was not clear if this person was a resident of the house.

Tiles were removed from the roof to help firefighters tackle remaining hotspots on the first floor.

UK Power Networks were also called to the scene to isolate power at the property.
