An elderly resident was escorted from a property by fire-fighters after a blaze in Sheringham.

A spokesman for Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service said: 'Appliances from Sheringham, Cromer and Holt attended Cromer Road to a building fire.

'Crews wearing breathing apparatus used hose reel jets to extinguish the fire and assisted an elderly resident from the property. A positive pressure ventilation fan was also used to clear smoke from the building.'

Crews attended the site from about 12.30pm today and the fire was extinguished about an hour later.

A spokesman added that the ambulance service was not required.
