They used hand appliances to fight the flames, which were extinguished by 5.15am.

But an appliance, also from Carrow fire station, was called back to the park to tackle a second fire just seven minutes later.

Firefighters used backpack sprayers to extinguish the fire, after being alerted at 5.22am.
