Three crews of firefighters have tackled a tractor fire this morning in Great Hockham.
Emergency services were called to a farm in the village at around 9.25am to reports of the fire.
Plumes of smoke could be seen from the A11 as the tractor burned, but nearby buildings were not affected. No one was hurt in the incident.
Neil Richardson, watch manager from Thetford Fire Station, said the fire is believed to have started in the tractor's exhaust pipe.
He said some straw had also caught fire, causing the smoke, and that no animals had been affected.
The crews were damping down the area by around 10am, which was expected to take an hour.
Police were also called to the scene.
