Fire crews have attended a grass fire which was deliberately ignited on Overstrand Road in Cromer.
Engines from Cromer and Sheringham fire station extinguished the flames, using back pack sprayers to tackle the blaze.
They were called at around 3.30pm and had put a stop to the fire's spread by 3.50pm.
A spokesperson for the fire service described the incident as not serious, and added that crews did not need to get their hoses out to put out the flames.
The incident occurred on Saturday, October 14.
Jack Greenwood, who witnessed the fire, said: 'We were just passing through. We rang the emergency services alongside some other people and heard the fire engines coming.'
Commenting on social media, Mr Greenwood added: 'I didn't see any goats on my way from Overstrand to Cromer. I reckon as it was reported early, the fire brigade will be able to get it under control.'
