Firefighters tackled a fire in a kitchen at a home in Swaffham.

Firefighters from Swaffham, Dereham and King's Lynn went to the fire, at a home in Jack Boddy Way, close to Waitrose, at just after 8.50pm today.

The crews used a dry powder extinguisher to put out the fire.

They then used a thermal image camera to check for hot spots and a fan to ventilate smoke from the property.
