Two people have been taken to hospital after a fallen electricity cable started a fire in Folkestone.
A shed in Shorncliffe Road caught ablaze when the wire snapped last night.
Around 15 firefighters were called to the scene at about 6.10pm and spent almost three hours tackling the blaze.
A man and woman, believed to be in their 50s, needed treatment after breathing in smoke.
The pair were taken to hospital by South East Coast Ambulance Service.
Firefighters worked with electricity engineers from UK Power Networks to make the area safe.
