Firefighters were called to reports of a car fire in Castle Mall car park, Norwich, during rush hour traffic at around 5.30pm on Monday afternoon.

Four fire engines from Carrow, Sprowston, Earlham and Hethersett lined Farmers Avenue outside the car park 2 entrance, from the cinema to the end of the road at Golden Ball Street.

But a Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said crews left the area shortly before 6pm after the fire was extinguished before their arrival.

Crews used a thermal image camera to check for hotspots and made sure the area was safe.
