Three fire crews were called out to deal with a flat on fire in Sprowston.

Crews from Sprowston, Earlham and Carrow raced to the scene after the alarm was raised on Wednesday, around 11.40pm.

They used hose reel jets to extinguish the fire and a positive pressure fan to disperse smoke from the premises.

It was the second time firefighters had been called out to the town in one night.

Earlier in the evening, appliances from Sprowston and Carrow attended Gertrude Road to some machinery on fire. The crews used main and hose reel jets to extinguish and also cooled some cylinders that were involved.
