Firefighters attended a property in Northfield Waye, Wells from 7.48am on Friday, August 16 and the stop message came in at 8.19am.

A spokesman for Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service said it was an accidental ignition.

A spokesman added: "Crews from Wells, Fakenham and Holt rescued a dog and used breathing apparatus, hose reel jets and ladders to extinguish a fire on Northfield Waye, Wells."

The dog was an Alaskan Malamute called Rocky.

Its owner, who wished to be known as just Hannah, said: "It was an upstairs flat kitchen fire. A family member lives at the property and looks after my dog, as I can't have him where I live.

"The dog was found in the living room. The lady underneth rang the fire brigade as my family member was at work."
