An investigation has been launched following a spate of arson attacks in Swanley.
A total of six fires, believed to be linked, have been reported in the space of a week in the Sycamore Drive area.
Residents are being urged to remain vigilant after bins, a skip and storage areas close to people's homes were set alight.
The fires all took place late at night or during the early hours of the morning.
Detective Inspector Richard O’Toole said: "Thankfully no one has been seriously injured, however any fire started deliberately can easily endanger lives.
"It is vital we identify anyone who may have been involved. This may be someone you know, who has been staying out late or who has come home smelling of petrol or smoke and is behaving differently.
"We are continuing to follow a number of enquiries, including reviewing any potential CCTV opportunities, carrying out forensic tests and conducting house to house enquiries."
Anyone with any information is urged to contact the police by calling the appeals line on 01622 604100, quoting reference 46/109765/20.
