Seven Broadstairs beach huts were destroyed by what is believed to be a suspicious fire in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
It is the latest in a spate of incidents which started in April and have damaged dozens of huts.
Two fire engines tackled the blaze, which broke out at 5am at Eastern Esplanade.
The fire was out by 6am and crews remained at the scene damping down for about 30 minutes.
Two other beach huts were damaged in the incident.
A beach hut was destroyed by fire in the early hours of June 15 this year and neighbouring huts were damaged.
A few weeks earlier vandals had tried to rip the roofs off several huts along the same stretch.
A police spokesman said: “Kent Fire and Rescue Service believe the blaze to be suspicious and officers will be investigating it as a possible arson attack.”
