Firefighters were called to deal with a blaze at a log cabin near Dereham.

Four appliances from Attleborough, Dereham, Earlham and Hingham attended a building fire in Scarning just before 5:15pm on Wednesday, December 11.

Crews wearing breathing apparatus used hose reel jets and compressed air foam to extinguish the blaze, while also using an aerial ladder platform from Earlham.

A control unit and drone were also sent from Wymondham, but the situation was under control before they arrived and so were not used.

Crews remain on the scene.
