Firefighters were called out to deal with the fire at St Anne Earlham’s church hall, in Colman Road, at about 4pm today.

Three fire crews - from Earlham, Carrow and Hethersett - were sent to the scene and it took firefighters about half an hour to get the fire under control using main and hose reel jets.

Fire investigator Brian Walshe said that nobody was in the building, or the neighbouring scout hut and church, at the time.

He said: “We are investigating a serious fire involving a church hall and its contents.

“Early indications suggest that it was possibly deliberate ignition.

“Police and the fire service will be carrying on the investigation in the morning. In the meantime, police have put a seal on the premises.”
