A Norfolk Fire and Rescue spokesman said crews from Mundesley, Sheringham, Aylsham and Sprowston were called to the blaze, just after 10am on Saturday, July 2. 

The firefighters used a combination of jet hoses and compressed-air foam to put out the fire, and declared it to be out at 1pm. 

A crew later revisited the scene to check in case it had flared up again, but everything was calm. 

Nobody was injured in the fire.
