Three fire crews were sent to the blaze in Crown Street at around 4.25pm.

The East of England Ambulance Service attended but no one required any medical help, a spokeswoman said.

Two fire crews, one from Leiston and another from Aldeburgh, were initially sent, and then another crew from Samundham was called as it was thought that someone may have been inside the house.

However, at 5pm it was confirmed that all of the occupants were safe.
