Firefighters were called to a house fire in south-west Norfolk.
Six fire crews, alongside an aerial ladder platform and control unit, were scrambled to reports of a building fire on Harling Road in Great Hockham, near Thetford, at around 2.17pm on Wednesday (April 15).
The crews, from East Harling, Watton, Thetford, Dereham, Hingham and Attleborough, used hose reel jets and main jets supplemented by a hydrant, while wearing breathing apparatus to put out the flames.
Firefighters then ensured the blaze was fully extinguished and checked for hot spots using thermal imaging equipment.
Crews stayed at the scene of the incident for more than three hours, and left at 5,43pm.
No one was believed to be in the property at the time of the fire.
On Thursday morning (April 16), the house was cordoned off as engineers from UK Power Networks worked to make safe the electricity provision to the building.
