Firefighters were called to Blue Bell Hill to tackle a crop blaze.
Two crews arrived at the scene just after 4.45pm today, to find 50 sqm of corn and fencing had caught alight.
The incident was reported on the Chatham-bound carriageway near Cobtree Manor Park Golf Course.
One lane is currently blocked but not because of the fire. A car has broken down between the golf club and the petrol station further up the A229.
Drivers are warned to approach with caution and to expect delays.
