Fire rips through terrace of houses

One man was taken to hospital and several homes evacuated on Wednesday night as fire tore through the roof of two terrace houses in Norwich.

More than 60 firefighters tackled the blaze and were still damping down on Thursday morning.

Other properties were evacuated in the case the fire spread.

Simon Mason from Norfolk Fire Service said the fire started in an upstairs bedroom but then spread to the roof.
