Firefighters tackled a house blaze in King’s Lynn tonight.
Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service were called to the home in Elvington at Gaywood just before 7pm today.
Three crews and the aerial ladder platform from King’s Lynn, one from Sandringham, and one from Terrington, and one from Massingham attended.
Simon Mason, station manager at King’s Lynn fire station, said: “We were called to a house fire at a semi-detached house. On arrival we weren’t sure if there was anyone in the property. Fortunately the owner turned up pretty quickly, she had been at work.”
“The fire started in an upstairs bedroom which then spread up into the loft space.
“We had to evacuate the neighbouring house as smoke had spread into the upstairs. We put in there with breathing apparatus to keep an eye on it and make sure the fire didn’t spread.
“We used our aerial ladder to take roof tiles off to ventilate the roof, this has given us better opportunity to dampen it down and remove hotspots.
“At this moment we don’t know the cause yet.”
A control unit with a support appliance from Wymondham, a welfare unit and a support appliance from Attleborough, and the Red Cross fire emergency support service also attended.
