It is thought the building was being used for the repair and maintenance of cars.

Nearby vehicles – including a lorry and a van and a forklift- have been moved as fire fighters tackle the blaze.

Gas bottles have also been removed from the area.

The flames have been seen from as far away as Downham Market.
