The appliances from Holt and Fakenham, wearing breathing apparatus, extinguished a chip fryer on fire using dry powder and foam extinguishers.

They were called out at about 2.10pm.

The well-known B&B tweeted shortly after to say they had been forced to evacuate after a 'small kitchen fire'.

A spokesman for the Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service said there were no reports of any injuries.
