Three fire crews were called to tackle a building fire in Great Yarmouth.

Two crews from Great Yarmouth and another from Gorleston were sent to reports of a blaze at a property in the Camperdown area of Great Yarmouth at about 10.30pm on Sunday, July 16.

Firefighters used hose reels to extinguish.

A man in his 40s who lives in the area but did not want to be named said he saw the blue flashing lights and heard the sirens so went to take a look at what was happening.

He said: “There was three fire engines in attendance, ambulance and police.

“My son lives in the property next door. That’s why I went down, to see which one it was.

“I phoned my son but he was over in Lowestoft at the time so I let him know and he made his way back.”

Although he could not see any flames he said he thought the fire damage was done to the back of the building.

He said he thought one person was treated by ambulance.
