Emergency services were called to a fire on the ground floor of a property in Waveney Crescent, Lowestoft on Friday February 27.
Police were initially alerted by the fire service to reports that people may be trapped in the house, however it was found that there was no-one inside.
It appears the fire may have started in a fuse box at the property.
A spokesman from Suffolk Fire and Rescue said they 'received a call at 10.27pm to a house that was severely smoke logged'.
'3 fire engines attended from Lowestoft South and 2 hose reels were used with full breathing apparatus.'
