Two large straw fires at either ends of the county kept emergency services busy today.
Firefighters were called out to Martham, near Hemsby, just before 1pm to reports of a barn fire on Common Road.
Crews from Martham, Acle, Great Yarmouth, Gorleston and a water carrier from Hethersett attended.
Firefighters used hose reel jets to extinguish the blaze, which engulfed straw inside the barn.
They were also assisted by a farmer and his teleporter vehicle.
