Firefighters have been called to a kitchen fire in Gorleston.

Two appliances from Gorleston were called to reports of a fire in the kitchen of an address in Newnham Green.

Crews, who were called just before 5.50pm on Sunday (July 16), removed “combustible materials from the oven” and used a fan to clear smoke from the building.

Earlier in the day, fire crews from Great Yarmouth and Gorleston attended a crash on Pasteur Road, Yarmouth.
