A wood burner is believed to have started a fire at a Grade II listed house this morning.
Fire crews were called to the home in Shadoxhurst, near Ashford just before 10am.
It is thought the blaze started when heat from a wood burner set fire to some dust sheets that were close by.
Two fire engines attended the property, in Hornash Lane, and used a hose reel jet to put the fire out.
Crews left the scene at 10.36pm and no injuries were reported.
A spokesman for Kent Fire and Rescue said: "Kent Fire and Rescue Service was called to a fire on the ground floor of a Grade II listed property on Hornash Lane, Shadoxhurst near Ashford.
Two fire engines attended and crews wearing breathing apparatus used a hose reel jet to put the fire out.
"The fire is believed to have started as a result of radiated heat from a wood burner setting nearby dust sheets alight.
"Smoke detectors in the property raised the alarm, and there were no reported casualties.
