A householder had to flee their home after a chimney fire led to it becoming smoke-logged.

Firefighters were called to the blaze at the home in Holt Road, Aylmerton, at just after 8.30pm last night (Friday, March 1).

They spent more than two hours at the scene, wearing breathing equipment to tackle the fire.

The aerial ladder platform from Earlham was used to fight the flames, joined by crews from Sheringham, Holt, Fakenham and Cromer.

A spokesman for Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service said the occupier of the home had got out before the crews arrived.
