A pub manager has thanked an electrical engineer who had them open for business in short order following a fire.
Orange Fox Electrical helped out The Rose and Crown, in Harpley, after a fire on its porch left them without electricity.
The pub, between Fakenham and King’s Lynn, suffered damage to its porch area on June 13, after a tumble dryer caught fire overnight.
The fire destroyed the washing machine and dryer, along with a fridge with bottles of champagne in and cleaning equipment.
It also burnt out the pub's distribution board, cutting off power across the building.
Jack Betts, an engineer for Orange Fox, was called out on the same day in the aftermath of the fire which happened at 4am.
