People have been urged to keep their doors and windows closed as firefighters attend a chemical incident in Fakenham.
Firefighters were called after 9.15pm to the “incident” on Oxborough Lane in Fakenham.
A spokesman for Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service (NFRS) said two appliances from Fakenham together with one from Carrow and the environmental protection unit from King’s Lynn have attended.
Firefighters used thermal image cameras and breathing apparatus when dealing with the chemical in a drum which has now been made safe.
