Fire crews battled a house fire in Norwich this evening.

Teams from Earlham and Sprowston attend Palmer Road in Sprowston, Norwich, after reports of a house fire at 8.09pm on Tuesday April 2.

Crews were on the scene for 20 minutes to extinguish the blaze, using thermal-imaging cameras to check for hot spots and positive pressure ventilation, which allowed firefighters to breath through the smoke.

An ambulance was called but no-one is understood to be injured.

The fire is not being treated as suspicious.
