A chimney fire at a property in Ballingdon Street, Sudbury last night spread to the floor above, requiring three fire engines.

An appliance from Sudbury was first called out to a chimney fire at 22.38pm but the crew found the fire had spread to the floor above and assistance was called for.

Two more appliances were dispatched and the fire was put out using a hosereel jet and tools to cut away the flooring.
