Fire appliances from Cromer, Sheringham and Mundesley and the aerial ladder platform from Earlham with a support appliance attended the incident.

A spokesman for the fire service said crews wearing breathing apparatus had used ladders and main and hose reel jets supplemented by a hydrant to extinguish in the early hours of the morning.

A thermal image camera was used to check for hot spots and a positive pressure ventilation fan was used to clear the property of smoke.

Gary Palmer, 53, who lives next door to the house where the fire started said: 'They think now it may have been an oil fire in a radiator in the bedroom or a chimney fire.'
