Firefighters were called to a fire in a house in Lavenham this morning after water leaked onto electrical wiring.

Crews from Long Melford and Sudbury attended the incident in the High Street and power company UK Power Networks also attended.

Fire services were called after smoke was seen coming from the property at around 7.45am.

Crews stopped the leak and used two dry powder fire extinguishers to put out the small fire which had broken out when water from the loft leaked onto the main electrical intake.

The officer in charge of the incident requested the attendance of UK Power Networks to isolate the electricity supply to the building.

A futher fire appliance from Bury St Edmunds fire station was also called out as extra dry powder extinguishers were needed.

The stop message was received at 10:14am.
