Fire crews tackled a caravan blaze last night near gas cylinders.
Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service was called at about 8.15pm to the fire off the A12 near Wangford.
Initial reports suggested it was a fire in the open but when the two sets of crews were told it was a caravan blaze a third appliance was dispatched.
Due to the presence of liquid petroleum gas cylinders, the fire was tackled from a safe distance using two hosereels.
The blaze was brought under control by around 8.50pm. One casualty was given first aid by fire crews before being left in the care of paramedics.
