Fire fighters have been praised for tackling a small blaze at a pub in Dereham.

Fire crews were called to a chip fryer blaze at The Greenstone pub, on Napier Way, at 9.20pm on Friday.

Fire fighters wearing breathing apparatus sets entered the building and used hose reel jets and dry powder extinguishers to put out the fire.

Customers were evacuated from the pub last night but the venue is open as normal today.

Nobody was harmed.

A statement on The Greenstone Facebook page said: 'A very big thank you to the Dereham Fire service who came to our rescue late this evening following a call out to an electrical fire that became to large for ourselves to tackle.
