Two fire crews were called to put out a blaze in Fakenham after animal stables were accidentally set alight.

The crews were called to the fire on Rudham Stile Lane, shortly before 4am on Friday, June 5.

Two appliances, both from Fakenham, attended the scene. They used a hose reel and main jets to put out the flames. Thermal imaging equipment was used to check for hot spots.

The stables, which had been used, did not have any animals in them at the time.

No one was injured by the fire, but an ambulance did attend the scene because of asbestos on the site.
