Fire fighters were called to a fire at a Norfolk nightclub in the early hours of this morning.

The fire, at The Lounge nightclub in Norwich Street, Dereham, started at about half past midnight.

Two fire engines from Dereham were called and were joined by one from Watton, with station manager Harcourt in charge.

Four fire fighters had to wear breathing masks and remove cladding from the outside of the building, as well as using a thermal imaging camera to check for hot spots. It is thought an electrical fault was the cause of the fire.

The fire service said that no-one was in the building at the time.
