Two fire engines were called to a flat in Sprowston after a chopping board caught fire today.

The female occupant had forgotten that the hob was on and the wooden board caught light. A fire engine from Sprowston and another from central Norwich spent a couple of minutes putting the fire out and then ventilated the flat using a large fan. No-one was hurt.

It happened in Hassett Close, Sprowston, at 3.30pm today.
