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.

  • I think the council should invoke whatever powers it has to force these takeaways and shabby restaurants to maintain their premises. The whole Yarmouth street scape is turning into a curry mile style unkempt squalor with fine old buildings rapidly decaying because these fly by night owners and occupiers don't give a fig for them or the town. One of the many ways Yarmouth is being spoiled by the greed of incomers.

  • What makes you think they will have insurance Kevin? Who bothers to check whether these businesses are genuine or money laundering covers or there to provide fake employment opportunities for citizenship applications? The number of shops in GY which seem to have a rapid turn over of young male staff and very low stock levels -is it not suspicious?

  • What a bad few months for them. Getting closed down by the health inspectors and then a fire ;-)
