A fire has hit two neighbouring takeaways in a north Norfolk seaside village.
Four crews were sent to deal with the blaze in Station Road, Mundesley, shortly after 11am on Wednesday.
Appliances from Mundesley, North Walsham, Cromer and Stalham were called to the scene.
Firefighters wore breathing apparatus and used hose reel jets to put out the blaze. A positive pressure ventilation fan was then used to clear the building of smoke.
Crews remain on scene, though the stop was received at 12.16pm.
A spokesperson for Norfolk Fire and Rescue said police and ambulance were not required to attend.
The fire started at BB's Burger Bar and spread to the connected Fish and Fry chip shop, which is owned by the same people.

The damage is believed to have been caused by a chip fan fire.
Witnesses reported hearing the sirens, but no-one saw the fire itself other than the owners of the takeaways.
Black smoke could be seen on the face of BB's Burger Bar in the aftermath of the fire.
Station Road remains closed to all traffic while firefighters continue to make the scene safe.
