Firefighters battle more blazes in Thetford Forest
Firefighters from Suffolk and Norfolk are again tackling blazes in undergrowth at Thetford Forest.
Two fires are currently ongoing in the undergrowth of the forest along the Brandon Road, close to Brandon.
One was called in at 4.08pm and crews from Methwold, Thetford, Brandon, Mildenhall and the water carrier from Newmarket have attended.
Another was called in at 4.34pm and a crew from Bury St Edmunds and two from Newmarket are there.
A spokesman for Suffolk County Council said the fires are under control and firefighters are now dampening down the undergrowth.
Six fire engines, plus the water bower from Newmarket, attended the incident which broke out at 5.06pm on Saturday.
The alarm was raised by cyclists on a bike ride who directed the fire crews to where the blaze had broken out in undergrowth.
