A car was destroyed in a fire on Tuesday morning which also caused damage to a garage and melted a side door of a property in Eaton.

The incident happened shortly after 1.30am at Wren Close and both the fire service and police officers attended the scene.

A Ford Focus was destroyed by the fire which then spread to the property resulting in damage to a garage door, a fence and a back door.

It is believed that someone set light to the car.

Two fire crews from Earlham and Carrow attended the scene. Firefighters were at the scene for about an hour and used hose reel jets to put out the fire.
