Fire crews were called to a mystery double blaze in woodland this afternoon.
Plumes of smoke were seen above trees at Old Park Avenue, Canterbury, from across the city shortly after 2pm.
When firefighters arrived on the scene, two areas covering 100 square metres were alight.
It took crews less than 10 minutes to put the flames out, but the area was dampened down for a further half-an-hour.
It is not known what started the fire, but the hot weather could have been a factor.
Earlier in the day, two fire engines were called to the landfill site in Broad Oak Road, Canterbury.
A pile of compacted rubbish was discovered alight at about 12.25am, and took almost two hours to put out.
