Three adults and two children have been taken to hospital after a fire broke out at about 8.35am today.

The ambulance service was called at 8.39am, dispatching a rapid response car, two ambulances and a paramedic.

Paramedic officer Nick Smith said: “We assessed five casualties for smoke inhalation. Their conditions weren’t thought to be serious but they were conveyed to James Paget University Hospital in Gorleston as a precaution.”

All roads have now reopened but St Peter’s Road was closed both ways between Standard Place and Napoleon Place while firefighters from around the region were at the scene.
