UPDATE: Ten fire crews tackle two storey house fire in Lound

EMERGENCY services tackled a large inferno in north Suffolk last night after a two storey building caught on fire.

Ten Suffolk and Norfolk fire and rescue crews and four fire officers attended the large house fire in Lound, between Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft, shortly after 8.30pm.

The building, believed to me Lound Manor, opposite the Village Maid pub on The Street, was approximately 20 metres by 25 metres in size, and its first floor and roof were both fully alight. Salvage was under way on the ground floor around 9.30pm.

A spokesman from Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service said: 'It was too dangerous for officers to be inside the house. They had to bring jets in to tackle the fire from the outside.

'Luckily there were no casualties.'

One fire crew remained on scene at around 10am this morning.
