A number of cylinders were quickly removed from the structure, before being cooled to ensure they were safe on site.

The blaze was contained at 2.30am by two Halstead fire crews, who were supported by four crews from Suffolk Fire Rescue Service.

Nobody is believed to have been hurt as a result of the incident.

The cause of the blaze, which is not yet known, is under investigation.
