Police have been alerted after a suspected barn fire turned out to be a squatters camp.
A passer-by on the Lower Rainham Road noticed smoke coming from some old stables and called the Kent Fire and Rescue at 8.18pm yesterday.
But when crews arrived they discovered a large group of homeless people had pitched up tents and started a camp fire inside.
"We put out the fire and called the police who are now dealing with it."
The pump left at 8.56pm.
