The fire service were called to a fire inside the building in Poplar Avenue in Saddlebow Industrial Estate at around 1.30pm on Wednesday.

Engines from King's Lynn North and South including an aerial ladder platform and an appliance from Downham Market attended the scene.

Crews used hose reel jets supplemented by a hydrant to extinguish the fire and a thermal image camera was used to check for hot spots.

A fire service spokesman said crews left the scene at around 3.15pm.

This is the second fire to hit the factory in seven months after a major blaze at the plant required up to 80 firefighters in October last year.
