A house fire was extinguished in Wells-next-the-Sea this morning after a sofa was accidentally set alight.

Two fire engines from Wells and Fakenham were called to the scene at 10.18am, where they battled the flames in the living room of a property in Northfield Avenue.

A spokesperson for Norfolk Fire and Rescue said: “We attended a house fire, where we extinguished the flames and ventilated the property.”

The fire, which occurred in a street near to Wells’ East Quay, is not believed to have been started deliberately.

Fire fighters left the scene just after 11am, where they wore breathing apparatus, and used hoses, a fire hydrant and thermal imaging cameras to tackle the blaze.

No one was thought to have been injured.
