Firefighters tackled a blaze at a property in Lowestoft.

Two crews from Lowestoft South and one from Lowestoft North fire station were called to High Street at 12.42pm this afternoon (September 11), following reports of a fire at the building which is home to the Broadland Aquatics store.

The three crews arrived to find a fire in the roof area of the property and set about stripping back the roofing in order to isolate the blaze and prevent it from spreading.

Hose reel jets were subsequently used to extinguish the fire and the incident was brought under control by 1.39pm.

The initial cause of the fire is currently unknown and further investigations will be conducted in due course.
