Around 60 cattle have been moved to safety and people are being told to keep windows and doors closed because of a fire near Ashford.
Firefighters were called to thousands of tonnes of straw and hay alight in three barns on Station Road, Pluckley just after half 7pm last night.
Six fire engines and a bulk water carrier were sent to the scene, and crews were using four main jets and a hose reel jet to tackle the blaze.
Firefighters have been working to salvage as many hay bales as possible.
Attendance to the fire involving three barns was reduced to two fire engines at around 7.30am this morning.
Crews are carrying out a watching brief, which is expected to continue for the next two to three days.
Crews are also working with the farmer to salvage some of the cattle feed from the premises.
Local residents are advised to continue to keep windows and doors closed, due to the smoke form the fire.
The cows that were moved to a nearby field overnight are safe and well.
The cause of the fire is not yet known.
There are no reports of anyone being injured.
