A fire crew from Sprowston and another from Carrow attended reports of a building fire on Jolly Gardeners Court, off Heath Road in Norwich, at just after 9pm on Sunday, June 14.

This was a private property and was extinguished before the crews arrived.

Earlier this evening, at just after 7.40pm, fire appliances from Carrow and Sprowston attended a domestic building fire on Stanley Avenue, off Yarmouth Road in Norwich.
