Emergency services were called to Finningham Road, at Botesdale, near Diss, at 3,30pm on Wednesday, July 3, after reports of that a large metal frame structure was on fire.
No livestock was in the building measuring 20m by 80m, which had been used as a chicken shed, as flames engulfed it.
Fire crews from from Stradbroke, Eye, Stowmarket, Bury St Edmunds, Elmswell, Ixworth, and Newmarket, were joined by Norfolk firefighters from Diss and Thetford to tackle the blaze.
The building, whose roof collapsed, was well alight and allowed to burn out while fire crews damped down nearby sheds to prevent it spreading.
