Two appliances from Dereham, and another from Fakenham, were called at 9.53am on Tuesday, October 22, to a house in mid Norfolk.

The engines arrived shortly after to Lawrence Place in Foxley, between Reepham and Dereham.

Crews wore breathing gear and used jets, ladders and a thermal image camera to put out the blaze, which is believed to have been contained on the first floor.

A positive pressure ventilation fan was also used to clear the building of smoke.
