Fire engines from Martham and Gorleston were called at around 1.30pm to the house in Northgate Street.

The householder said he turned on the dishwasher which caused an electrical fault and upon seeing smoke and hearing the fire alarm, he quickly left the property with his dog before calling 999.

Crews used breathing apparatus, hoses, hydrants and thermal image cameras to extinguish the fire.
