A roadside cafe hit by a fire which saw six crews rush to the scene on Thursday has said it will close while repairs are carried out.

On a post on Facebook, Brown’s Cafe on Swaffham Road, Mundford, said the cafe had been affected by a small fire in its kitchen.

It added the cafe would be shut to repair the damage and make the building safe.

The post stated: “We had a small fire in our kitchen this afternoon and I’m afraid we will be closed until we make good the damage and ensure that everything is certified safe.

“Many apologies for any inconvenience. Happily everyone is safe and well.”

Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service sent six crews at around 3.17pm on Thursday, and used jets and a thermal image camera to identify hot spots and fight the fire.

A man was treated for minor smoke inhalation and an ambulance was called, but was stood down before it arrived on scene.
