Firefighters spent more than three hours tackling a blaze in a West Norfolk grain store.
Crews from Methwold, Downham Market and King's Lynn South were called to the scene on Lynn Road in Stoke Ferry shortly after 4pm on Friday (April 19).
A Norfolk fire service spokesman was unable to give an exact address for the incident, but a witness said it was the factory in the centre of the village.
A fire service spokesman initially said crews were dealing with a 'smouldering fire' within a feed table that goes underground.
The spokesman said the fire was in a confined space, adding: 'It is going to be difficult to get to.'
It is understood the fire was within the base of a silo.
Firefighters used ladders, main and hose reel jets to put out the deep seated fire.
