Several fire crews tackle shed containing cylinders fire in north Suffolk

Several fire crews were called to deal with a shed fire in north Suffolk over the weekend.

The place took place in Metfield on Saturday afternoon.

Firefighters from Bungay and Halesworth attended the blaze, which involved a shed containing cylinders, at about 12.30pm.

After arriving at the scene, in St John’s Meadow, the crews found that an adjacent fence was also involved the fire.

The firefighters isolated the electricity supply to the shed, and began cooling and venting the cylinders.

Two hose reels and two sets of breathing apparatus were used to fight the fire, and a further three ground monitors and one thermal imaging camera were used to monitor the state of the cylinders.

The incident was under control by about 1.40pm.

It is believed that the fire started accidentally.
