Fire crews were called out to two blazes during last night's strike.
In the first, in Tudor Avenue a fence was set alight in a rear garden when a bonfire got out of control.
It was put out by crews with hoses in around 20 minutes.
The driver had already extinguished it by the time the crew arrived, and firefighters left shortly after.
It happened in the London-bound carriageway between J8 at Leeds and J9 for Ashford.
The strike happened between 5pm and 7pm and was part of an eight-day strike in a dispute about pensions.
Kent Fire and Rescue Service has made "contingency plans", but is urging the public to be extra cautious to avoid fires or emergencies.
