Suffolk: House fire spreads to neighbouring property

Firefighters from Suffolk and Norfolk tackle two-home blaze in Lakenheath

FIREFIGHTERS battled for more than two hours to control a garden fire which spread to two homes.

At its height crews from Mildenhall, Brandon and Methwold used breathing apparatus, nine-metre ladders and hosereel to tackle the blaze in Anchor Lane, Lakenheath.

The first crew arrived on the scene just after 4.30pm yesterday after receiving calls that a fence and outbuildings were on fire.

Support crews were called after the blaze spread to a nearby house before catching fire to an adjoining property.

A structural engineer has declared a third of the first house too dangerous for anyone to enter.
