An ice cream freezer may have caused the blaze at the Regent Superbowl and Indoor Market.
Phil Thompson, the landlord of the building said that the ice cream freezer on the first floor may have been the cause after getting a call from a fireman on Tuesday night. Jonathan Wilby, eastern district station manager for Norfolk Fire, said: 'We believe that it has been caused by an electrical fault, such as a problem with an electrical circuit or electrical item.
'We have a good idea of what it could be but we are still carrying out investigations.'
Meanwhile fire crews will be on the scene at Regent Road for the majority of the day.
Six days after the blaze which destroyed the iconic building in Great Yarmouth, crews are still at the scene dampening down the remains.
