Nine Norfolk fire crews tackle woodland fire

At least nine fire engines were called to put out a woodland fire which broke out today.

Crews from Reepham, Earlham, Hethersett, Sprowston, Norwich, Wroxham, Acle, Fakenham and Aylsham were among those sent, together with two water carriers, to an area of woodland off the Reepham Road, near Felthorpe.

Firefighters used hose reel jets and hand appliances to tackle the fire in the 200m by 200m of woodland just before 9.40am.
