Firefighters have tackled a blaze at a garage near Norwich.
Four crews were sent the Pound Garage on Buxton Road in Frettenham after a fire broke out at around 3.25pm on Monday December 9.
Crew manager Shaun Hearn said it was a difficult fire to extinguish because of overhead electricity poles which had to be isolated.
The fire was extinguished at around 4.41pm but crews were this evening still working to dampen down the garage.
Three police officers were also on the scene.
