Crews from Sprowston, Carrow, Earlham, Hethersett, Wymondham, Wroxham and Long Stratton were sent, and arrived on scene at 3.26am.

The fire, in a private residence, had been put out before arrival, but emergency services remained on scene for an hour to make the scene safe.

The ambulance service was not called to the scene, and no-one is believed to have been hurt.
