Crews wore their breathing apparatus to tackle the fire and went into the house discovering the flames on the first floor.

They spent around 30 minutes at the scene and used a hose reel to put out the fire.

They then gave oxygen to the man, aged around 30.

A spokesman for Kent Fire and Rescue Service said the cause of the fire is unknown.

A fan had to be used to clear smoke from the property after the flames were put out.
