THREE fire engines were called to a small fire that was already out by the time they arrived.

The fire and rescue service was contacted with reports of a fire in a home in Church View Close, Aller, at 8.16pm yesterday (Monday).

A service spokesman said: "Upon arrival crews found that there had been a very small fire, which was already out, caused by a blown fuse.

"No damage was caused to the property and an electrician was also on scene.

"Crews used a thermal imaging camera to ensure that the area was safe prior to leaving."
