More than 20 firefighters have been tackling a blaze at Chatham Docks.
Five crews were called to a fire at the Mittal Steel warehouse at the site off Pier Road at 6.40pm yesterday.
The fire was located in machinery inside the building. Firefighters wearing breathing apparatus used jets to extinguish the flames.
Crew Manager Darryl Spicer, from Medway station, said at the moment they believe the fire was caused by an electrical fault in one of the machines.
He said: "It was a reasonable size fire but because of the large building there was a lot of smoke trapped inside.
"People were working in there, but they got out very quickly and without any danger."
He added that there was hydraulic oil from the machinery burning and the entire building was smoke logged.
Two engines from Medway, and one each from Thames-side, Strood and Maidstone attended the blaze.
They remained on the scene until 8.40pm to damp down the fire and ventilate the warehouse.
