Firefighters tackled a large blaze caused by thousands of pallets which had set alight off the A17 in west Norfolk.
The call came in at around 2.53pm on Saturday, April 16, to reports of an open fire near to Walpole Cross Keys.
The incident caused the A17 to close for around 12 hours between Pullover roundabout and Sutton Bridge.
This impacted travel in the area and caused significant delays.
Appliances from Terrington St Clement, King’s Lynn, Fakenham, Sandringham, Outwell, Hingham, Heacham and crews from Suffolk were in attendance.
Norfolk police were also at the scene.
The road was reopened in both directions during the early hours of Sunday morning.
