A fire crew from Yarmouth attended the blaze at the building on Northgate Street shortly before 2.15am today (Friday, January 1).

The fire was extinguished before the arrival of the brigade and a thermal imaging camera was used to check for hot spots.

Meanwhile at 1.20am on New Year's Day, one appliance from Carrow attended a vehicle fire on St Mildreds Road in Norwich.
