Firefighters have spent almost 24 hours tackling a barn blaze.
Fire crews continue to battle the fire, which engulfed the building in Goss Hall lane, Ash, near Canterbury, at about 11am yesterday (Sunday).
The barn contains approximately 800 tonnes of straw, a vehicle and farm machinery.
Four fire engines and a bulk water carrier initially rushed to the scene yesterday, where firefighting efforts were made especially difficult as strong winds fanned the flames.
The blaze continued overnight, and two fire engines remain at the scene this morning as crews make "steady progress".
A fire service spokesman said: "Crews have been using a hose reel jet to extinguish the blaze.
"Firefighters will now be carrying out a controlled burn at the incident and people living or working nearby are still advised to keep windows and doors closed as a precaution."
A ground monitor is also in use to protect surrounding properties.
