Firefighters spent a large part of Sunday evening dealing with a bonfire of more than 100 tyres.
The fire caused plumes of billowing black smoke that could be seen from miles away.
A Kent Fire and Rescue spokesman said the bonfire was on private woodland on Headcorn Road, Frittenden, near Cranbrook.
When crews arrived they were faced with a 10 metre high pile which was well alight. They managed to remove a large number of tyres from it, that hadn't yet caught fire.
It took around an hour of using jets to cool the area around the blaze. The initial call came in at 5pm, with the fire being made safe just before 10pm.
KFRS station manager Jason Bardell, said "We need to remind everyone of the environmental impact of burning tyres. Incidents like this can cause environmental damage and will tie up fire crews for hours."
