The land and air ambulance crews arrived between 7.50-8am and worked for an hour stabilising the man at the property.

He had been found unconscious but breathing and was taken to Norfolk & Norwich Hospital at about 8.50am in a “serious but stable condition”.

She said the burns had been caused by a gas heater.
