A small chunk of woods, a storage area and a number of gardening tools were lost in the fire, but no cats or people were harmed.

A post on the charity’s Facebook page read: “Huge thanks to the Norfolk Fire Service for their swift response this evening.

“Of course all cats, animals and humans are unharmed but we’re a little shaken.”

It said that the clean-up operation would wait until after their annual Open Day, which ran from noon to 3pm.

Two crews from Attleborough and Thetford attended and used hose reel jets and a thermal imaging camera to extinguish the blaze and dampen down the area.
