Firefighters saved a house from going up in flames after a fire broke out in a workshop attached to it in the early hours of the New Year.

Four crews of firefighters were called to the blaze at the building on Feltwell Road, in Southery, near Downham Market, at 1.08am.

The first arrived at 1.26am.

The crews, from Downham Market, Methwold, Littleport and King's Lynn South, used hose reel jets and compressed air foam to put the fire out.

A spokesman said the fire was 'threatening to advance to the house', but the firefighters stopped it.

It is not believed that anyone was injured.

Firefighters are due to return to the property at 9am to check for any hot spots.
