Firefighters have been called to two chimney blazes in south Norfolk this evening.

Two crews from East Harling and Diss were first called to a thatched property on Church Lane in Blo Norton just after 7.40pm.

They had put out the fire, which did not spread from the chimney, in under an hour.

Meanwhile, just 10 minutes later, one crew from Garboldisham was called to a property on Back Street.

They used chimney equipment and hand pumps to extinguish the fire.
