A blaze erupted at the abandoned Pontins resort in Hemsby, with fire crews tackling flames rising from a disused building.
Those who live near the site have long called for tighter security to stop arsonists and urban explorers.
Last night (Saturday, March 15), two fire appliances were called from Great Yarmouth and Gorleston shortly before 5.30pm to reports of a building on fire.
A spokesperson for Norfolk Fire and Rescue said the crews used their hose reel jets to tackle the flames, and had stood down from the job just before 6pm.
