Firefighters were called at around 12.30pm today, after a blaze broke out in the garage of a Burgh Road bungalow, spreading to two garden sheds.

Two appliances from Great Yarmouth and two from Gorleston attended the scene, with a team of 16 firefighters tackling the fire.

Glen South, incident commander, said: 'Both sheds have been destroyed as well as their contents and the garage, which had butane cylinders inside.

'Our team did really well in preventing further damage - if it wasn't for the prompt action of the crew the bungalow could have been affected, as could properties nearby.'
