Fire fighters have been called to a house in Norwich to extinguish a cooker fire.

Crews from Sprowston and Earlham were called to Tracey Road in Thorpe St Andrew at around 3.22am this morning (Tuesday, April 23) to investigate reports of a smell of burning.

Upon arrival, they discovered the source of the smell to be a cooker fire and used reel jets to extinguish the fire.

Thermal imaging equipment was then used to check for hot spots before a fan was used to help clear smoke from the home where the fire had been.
