Fire crews were called to the scene of an abandoned caravan fire last night, in what is being described by Suffolk Fire and Rescue as a "deliberate" act.
One person who lives nearby described hearing a 'loud explosion' noise at the time of the incident.
A fire crew from Lowestoft South and one from Wrentham were called to the scene of an abandoned caravan fire on Hulver Road, Mutford, yesterday (June 7) at 11.02pm.
A stop message was then received at 11.34pm but a spokesman for Suffolk Fire and Rescue confirmed it has reason to believe this was a deliberate act.
He said: "Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service attended a fire at a derelict caravan close to Hulver Road late last night.
