A TEENAGE girl had a lucky escape after a fire ripped through an upstairs airing cupboard in her home, sending plumes of thick smoke billowing through the property.

The 16-year-old girl managed to escape to her next door neighbour's home before the blaze took hold of an area of the first floor.

The drama unfolded at a large detached property in Wincanton Close, Ipswich, shortly before 5.30pm tonight.
