Firefighters were called to put out a burning range at a chip shop.

Three appliances were sent to Clenchwarton, near King's Lynn, just before lunchtime.

'The crews used hose reel jets and a dry powder extinguisher to extinguish the fire whilst wearing breathing apparatus.'

The fire was confined to a cooking range at the Coopers Plaice chip shop, near the junction with Main Road. Crews were on the scene for just under an hour.
