Fire crews were called to a house fire in Shotley yesterday afternoon.
The incident happened in Kingsland at around 1.20pm, when a fire took hold of a washing machine in the kitchen of a house.
One unit from Princes Street in Ipswich and one unit from Holbrook attended.
A further unit, from Ipswich East, was then called after reports that someone was still in the building.
One person was treated for smoke inhalation as a result of the incident.
Four firefighters used two hose reels to extinguish the flames, and then remained at the property to deal with smoke.
