Firefighters are tackling a fire in the gardens of Worlingham Hall as the region continues to bake under the sun.
The fire, which started at around 3.30pm, is affecting around 20 square metres of bracken within a 150 acre area of forest.
Suffolk Fire and Rescue said the landowner needed to provide a digger to help gain access to the fire.
The incident is being tackled by two crews, one from Beccles and one from Bungay.
A spokesman for the fire service said: “We have got two pumps on scene at a fire involving 20 square meters of bracken and it was also believed to be deep seated in a forest area.
