Fire above Norwich city centre restaurant
Emergency services were called out to a fire in a flat above a city centre restaurant tonight (Friday).
The fire happened at 8.10pm in a second floor flat above the Bishop's Dining Room and Wine Bar in St Andrew's Hill.
North Earlham's blue watch manager Gordon Oliver, from Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service, said the fire caused extensive damage to the flat, and some to the first floor kitchen of the restaurant.
He said: 'It occurred on the second floor and was quite an extensive fire but the investigation is still ongoing and we don't know what the cause is.'
Fire crews also had to break into the next door Bridewell Museum after its alarm was activated but thankfully the fire did not spread to the museum.
