About 35 fire-fighters from six pumps spent several hours tackling a blaze in a workshop at an industrial unit in Asmanhaugh, near Wroxham.
Crews were called to the Bridgland Moulders site in Rectory Road at about 4.20pm today.
No-one was injured in the blaze, which was put out before 6pm. Two fire crews remained on scene for about an hour afterwards monitoring the situation. All roads leading to the site were closed by police.
Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service crew manager Carl Mills, based at Wroxham, said they received a call to a building fire at about 4.20pm.
He said: 'Our crew from Wroxham and one from Sprowston were mobilised initially, and then we requested more resources.
