Four fire crews were needed to tackle a fire at a Watton industrial estate which lasted three hours.
Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service initially sent fire engines from Hingham and Watton fire stations as well as the aerial ladder platform from Earlham following reports of a commercial building fire.
The service received a call at 4.35pm on Saturday afternoon to Threxton Road Industrial Estate, in Watton.
A fire engine from Dereham Fire Station also attended.
A fire service spokesman said after an hour "good progress" was being made after flames had spread to the main building.
Crews used breathing apparatus as well as jets and hose reel jets to extinguish the fire.
A thermal imaging camera was used to check for hot spots.
