Christmas tree lights caused Cranworth house fire, near Dereham
Christmas tree lights were the cause of a house fire, investigators have confirmed.
Firefighters from nearby Watton and Hingham were called to the property off Moor Lane just after 8pm yesterday and were at the scene for nearly an hour.
The blaze happened in the front room and the emergency services were alerted to the incident after a neighbour heard a smoke alarm.
A Norfolk Fire Service spokesman said no-one was in the house at the time and no-one was injured.
