Crews from Sprowston, Earlham, Wroxham, Hethersett, Aylsham, Wymondham and Long Stratton were called to the scene in Mile Cross Lane, near the Boundary junction, at 10.56pm.
Police cars were also seen blocking off part of the road.
Firefighters wearing breathing apparatus used main and hose reel jets top battle the blaze for nearly two hours.
