Three appliances from Kings Lynn were called to a fire in the bedroom of a property on the Fairstead Estate, Gaywood, Lynn at just before 8.40pm tonight.

A spokesman in the Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service control room said crews wore breathing apparatus and extinguished using hose reel and main jets.

A thermal imaging camera was used to check for hotspots and a positive pressure ventilation fan to clear smoke from the property.

Firefighters were on scene for just over an hour and two people were treated for smoke inhalation.

There are no more details at this time.
