Firefighters are expected to keep a watching brief on a barn throughout the night after it was badly damaged by fire.
Eleven firecrews were called to the barn blaze at Wissington, near Methwold, which broke out at 6pm.
The chicken farm is owned by the charity Grace of Jesus Christ Crusade.
Firecrews, including an aerial turn table ladder, extinguished the blaze but the barn was left with substantial damage, particularly to the roof.
The firecrews are expected to return to the scene at 1am to make further checks.
Workers for the charity were not available to speak to and it is believed they live abroad.
Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service said asbestos from the building was being carried on the wind.
