Huge flames could be seen leaping into the air from the scene of a mobile home fire, which police were called to because of reports shots had been heard.

Two Fire and Rescue Crews from Dereham's station tackled the blaze at a property off Mill Road in Mattishall, near Dereham, at 10.44pm on Sunday.

A spokesman said the blaze was out within an hour.

A Mattishall resident, who did not want to be named, said the flames could be seen from some distance away.

Norfolk Police were also called to the scene, but fears shots had been fired turned out to be unfounded.

A spokesman said: "Shots had been heard at the scene, but these were later confirmed to be noises related to the fire."

The police said no-one was injured in the incident.
