Two fire crews from Fakenham and Wells tackled a fire in a first floor flat in Wensum Way, Fakenham.

They were called at about 10.50pm on Friday and were at the scene for about an hour.

Firefighters wore breathing apparatus as they put out the blaze, a thermal image camera to check for hot spots and they helped to ventilate the property.

The cause of the fire is unclear.
