SuffolkNews Podcast: Causes of massive fires at spa and house on same day are revealed

In today’s podcast, the causes of two major fires which tore through a spa complex and a house on the same day have been revealed.

The first of the two fires on Friday started shortly after midnight at the Riverhills Health Club and Spa on the outskirts of Ipswich and was attended by more than 20 crews.

Less than eight hours later, almost 20 fire crews from across Suffolk were dealing with a major blaze at a house in Norwich Road, Earl Stonham, near Stowmarket.

Today, Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service confirmed both incidents were accidental.

Police were alerted at about 2.30pm yesterday to the B1122, at the junction with Potter’s Street.

And finally, a journalist from New Zealand is planning a trip to Rougham, near Bury St Edmunds, to make a film about reports of a mysterious, ‘disappearing house’.

Jim Birchall who creates podcasts about unexplained phenomena, has appealed for people living in and around the West Suffolk village that may have seen the ‘Rougham Mirage’ to get in touch with him.

Over the last 150 years people living in and passing through Rougham have reported seeing a grand, Georgian-style house.

The house has then allegedly either disappeared from in front of them, or simply been missing when they returned to the same road later that day.

The full story can be found here.
