Two crews were initially called to the partially demolished property being converted into flats in the town's Deneside shortly after midnight.

After finding the blaze had taken hold, and with access difficult due to the state of the building, further crews were called from Gorleston and Martham.

A hydraulic platform was used to fight the fire and one crew was still on scene at 4am.
