The cause of a blaze which destroyed two industrial units over the weekend remains unclear after a fire investigation came to an end.
Firefighters from Aylsham, Fakenham, Cromer, Sheringham, Mundesley and Holt were called to Metton Road near Felbrigg just before 2.20am yesterday.
The fire was put out just after 5am and the final crew left at 1pm, just before the road reopened.
A Norfolk Fire Service spokesman said an investigation started this morning (Monday).
But this afternoon he said: “Due to the extent of the damage we have been unable to establish the definitive cause.”
He added the investigation by fire officers had finished.
Car salesman and motor engineer Melvyn Jarvis, 52, owned one of two units which was engulfed by fire.
The building had been the base for his JMS Motor Engineers business for three years.
He said yesterday the blaze had caused thousands of pounds worth of damage and added he was not sure what the cause of the fire was.
In total three vehicles inside the building were ruined, another five were burned out and four seriously damaged. Mr Jarvis’s tools were also ruined.
Mr Jarvis, who lives in Letheringsett, near Holt, has already had an offer of help from a friend based in Corpusty who has offered him space to work.
