Three people were rescued from a Norwich home after a fire broke out in the early hours of the morning.

It happened in Lincoln Street, off Unthank Road, where fire crews were called at 3.49am.

Two crews, from Earlham and Sprowston, rushed to the scene and rescued three people.

They used hose reel jets to extinguish the fire whilst wearing breathing apparatus and also used a positive pressure fan to disperse the smoke.

A Norfolk Fire and Rescue spokesman described it as a 'minor fire in a terraced house'.
