Firefighters were called to a residential street last night following reports of an explosion in the area.
Crews were joined by police in Medhurst Gardens, Gravesend, shortly after 10pm.
A member of Thames-side Fire Station confirmed the incident to be a false alarm.
"We were called to reports of an explosion but did not find anything," he explained.
He said it was unclear who exactly put in the 999 call but the resident's home they were called to had said it was not them.
One resident is reported to have said there was ongoing gas works in the area.
