A car which caught fire in the early hours of the morning may have been stolen.

One crew of firefighters from Acle were called to the blaze on Acle Road, Lingwood, 400m from the A47, at 3.46am, and arrived at 4am.

They used compressed air foam to put out the fire, which also damaged overhead cables.

They declared the incident over at 4.10am.

Firefighters then called police to the scene because they believed the car may have been stolen, and the fire may have been started deliberately.

Police are now making further enquiries, and trying to trace the car’s owner.
