The moment fire fighters arrived at a grass fire that had spread to a garden shed and garage has been captured by a passer-by.

Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service crews from Carrow and Earlham arrived at the fire in Fairway, Costessey, at 12.23pm today.

A garage has been partially damaged and the shed has been burnt down.

Nine fire fighters used hose reel jets and a hydrant to put the flames out within 15 minutes of arrival.

Angela Clarke, who lives in Queen’s Hill, got footage of the incident.

She said: “I noticed the thick black smoke about 12.10pm lunch time and ran round the back of my property to see where it was coming from.

“What I found was a fire in the back garden of a house on fairway Queen’s Hill, the shed fence and joining garages had all caught fire and was spreading fast.

“The fire service turned up about five minutes after I arrived and put out the fire very quickly.”
