Fire crews from Carrow, Loddon and Earlham went to put out the blaze at a property in St Peter's Road on Thursday evening.

Watch manager Ian Munro said the fire started around 9pm in a wood-burning brazier before spreading to the outbuildings.

Mr Munro said it was difficult to tell exactly how many outbuildings had burned down because of how large the fire was.

He said: 'Two appliances were dispatched and when I arrived I asked for a third appliance due to the extent of the fire. We were told there were a number of cylinders involved but we believe they all vented off before we arrived.'
