Firefighters tackle blaze at derelict church in Ipswich

  • 3-8-2011

Fifty firefighters have been tackling a blaze in a derelict listed building in the centre of Ipswich all night.

The fire broke out at St Michaels Church on Upper Orwell Street just before 2200 GMT on Monday.

Upper Orwell Street and several adjacent roads were closed and on Monday some nearby restaurants and takeaways were forced to close early.

Police have closed off the surrounding area as the church was in danger of collapse, Suffolk Fire Service said.
