Firefighters are tackling a house fire in the west of the county - just hours after a similar blaze 20 minutes away.
Three crews from King's Lynn and one from Massingham were called just before 1pm to Gaywood, to reports of a fire in the front of a Wheelwright Road property.
Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service has issued a warning for people to avoid the area, as a team of 30 firefighters dampen down the blaze.
A spokesman for the fire service confirmed that nobody was injured in the fire, which took almost an hour to get under control - though crews are still on scene.
It came just hours after another house fire in the west of the county - on School Road in Great Massingham.
