Firefighters tackled a thatched roof fire in Old Newton last night.

Eighteen vehicles attended the blaze at a two-storey thatched cottage, in Chapel Road, at about 9.56pm.

At about midnight, Chief Fire Officer Mark Hardingham posted on the Suffolk Fire and Rescue Facebook page that firefighters were trying to create a fire break in the roof and salvage the contents of the property.

He said: “Well done to all the firefighters officers and control staff supporting this incident...you’re doing a great job.”

The incident was under control by 4.06am this morning.
