A spokesman for Kent Fire and Rescue Service said: “On arrival, firefighters found three areas of fire that were well alight.

“They fought the fire using hose reel jets and a fire fogging unit, which uses a fine mist to suppress the flames. Beaters were also used.”

Crews remained to damp down and prevent further spread. They left at 5.45pm.
