TARPAULIN and scaffolding is now protecting the picturesque cottages ravaged by fire last month from the elements.
Repairs are about to start on the cottages at Euston, a village near Thetford, where the thatched roofs were ruined by a blaze.
It took firefighters from Suffolk and Norfolk around three hours to put out the fire which broke out just after 8pm on Wednesday September 4.
But damage was not just restricted to the roof and the chimney breast where the fire started but also spread in to the cottages leaving heaps of blackened pieces of broken furniture.
