A historic Norwich church was evacuated after a fire in a light fitting.
Firefighters were called to St Martin at Palace Church just before 12.10pm on Saturday afternoon.
Three crews had extinguished the light fitting fire by 12.30pm.
The blaze is not thought to have spread elsewhere in the church, which, having been referred to in the Domesday Book of 1086, is one of the oldest in the city.
The church was open to the public as part of Heritage Open Days.
