Fire crews have been called to Ed Sheeran’s country estate after a fire broke out on Friday morning.

Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service were called just after 7.30am to reports of a “small building fire” at his home in Suffolk.

The fire was extinguished by three engines sent to the property, and the area ventilated of smoke.

The operation took less than two hours.

A spokesperson for the service said: “Suffolk firefighters were called to a small building fire at 0733 this morning.

“Three engines were sent to the incident, from Framlingham, Saxmundham and Halesworth.

“Crews extinguished the fire quickly and then ventilated the area of heavy smoke.

“The incident was closed at 0855.”

A spokesman for East of England Ambulance Service said it had undertaken no jobs matching that description in the county on Friday.

The pop star, 27, has bought a number of properties close to Framlingham in Suffolk where he grew up.

Sheeran lives on the estate with his wife Cherry Seaborn, a childhood friend who he attended school with in Suffolk and became romantically involved years later.

Representatives of Sheeran have been contacted for comment.
