A number of houses were evacuated in Halesworth in the early hours of this morning due to a bonfire blaze.
Police said that a bonfire which was believed to have been put out at a property in Old Station Road last night caught fire again overnight and spread to nearby sheds and fences.
Three fire engines were also called at 4.10am and several houses were evacuated for precautionary measures while crews tackled the out-of-control bonfire blaze.
There were no injuries or anyone trapped, police said.
The fire had been put out and brought under control by 5.15am.
