The incident started yesterday afternoon at about 4.30pm and fire crews from Sandringham, Heacham, two from Kings Lynn North, Kings Lynn South, Massingham, and Wells were sent to the scene along with a control unit, welfare team, and the drone unit from Wymondham.
Firefighters remained at the incident until about midnight.
