Two crews from Ashford and Canterbury attended the fire for around an hour using breathing apparatus but contained the flames.

Ashford crew manager Neil Jones said: "There was a bedroom fire in Godmersham which two pumps attended, one from Ashford and one from Canterbury.

"The bedroom was completely destroyed.

"A mum and her three kids got out and called us.

"We were there for around an hour. It had smoke alarms fitted which helped raise the alarm."
