Firefighters were left tackling a large fire in East Cambridgeshire for more than two hours after someone’s garage went up in flames.

Crews from the Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service's Cottenham and Chatteris station were called to the scene in Haddenham at around 8pm on Friday, September 6.

The firefighters worked on the Hill Row blaze for nearly two-and-a-half hours before returning to their Fenland stations just before 11pm.

A spokesman for Cambs Fire said: "At 8.18pm on Friday, one crew from Cottenham and one crew from Chatteris were called to a fire on Hill Row in Haddenham.

"Firefighters arrived to find a fire involving a garage. Wearing breathing apparatus they extinguished the fire using hose reels and a jet.
