Christie Chapman has set up a fundraising page as it was her best friends who were affected.

More than £300 of the £500 target has been raised at the time of writing as an appeal has been launched to support the family following the devastating fire.

The page reads: "My best friends literally lost everything in a terrible house fire last night and left with nothing but their clothes on their back. Please could everyone share and donate as every little helps."

Posting on social media, she added: "I can't thank the community enough for all they have been doing for this lovely family."

A spokesman for Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service said: "Crews wore breathing apparatus and used main jets and hose reel jets to extinguish the fire. A thermal imaging camera was used to check for hot spots."
