Investigations are taking place after a house fire on the edge of Norwich.
The blaze on Rufus Street, on the Queen's Hills development in New Costessey, broke out just after 10.50pm on Saturday December 17.
Paramedics from the East of England Ambulance Service Trust treated one person for smoke inhalation.
Firefighters from Earlham, Carrow, Sprowston and Wymondham were called along with police officers.
A Norfolk Fire Service control room operator confirmed fire investigators were looking into how the fire started.
