Fire crews from Ixworth, East Harling in Norfolk and the multistar from Bury were sent following reports of the fire just after 5pm this evening. Firefighters arrived on the scene at 5.23pm and found a workshop with a fire in the roof space. They used breathing apparatud, a hosereel and a covering jet to extinguish the flames.

The incident was under control by 6.30pm, after which crews began stripping the roof tiles and damping down hotspots.
