Fire investigators have visited a Great Yarmouth shop after a blaze tore through the building.
Cex on King Street was hit by a dramatic blaze on Thursday night, with fire crews fighting the flames for seven hours.
Marshals from Norfolk Fire and Rescue arrived at the shop at around 10.30am on Friday to survey the scene and talk to staff.
One marshal commented: "The team which tackled the fire did brilliantly."
The fire, which was reported at 7,46pm on Thursday, destroyed much of the inside of the entrance of Cex, a second hand electronics store.
There is visible smoke damage on the shutters, which were originally red but have been scorched black.
