More than 30 firefighters are currently tackling blaze at a bungalow in Isleham, on the Suffolk/Cambridgeshire border.

Crews were called at around 5.40am today (Friday, July 3) and arrived to find a two-bedroom property on the B114, in Isleham, well alight.

Engines from both Suffolk and Cambridgeshire attended the scene, with three crews from Newmarket and one from Mildenhall helping tackle the blaze.

A spokesman for Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue said: “More than 30 firefighters are currently at scene tackling the fire. This includes crews from Burwell, Cambridge and Ely, along with crews from Newmarket and Mildenhall in Suffolk.

The wellbeing of the occupants is not known.
