Five fire engines arrived at the property and firefighters wearing breathing apparatus used hose reel jets to extinguish the flames.

Police officers also attended the scene and arrived to find a shed and trees alight in Highcross Road.

Investigations into the cause are ongoing.

Just before 5.30am, crews then attended a blaze in Northfleet after a pile of domestic and commercial rubbish caught alight.

It is believed the fire was caused accidentally after a bonfire spread on a building site.

Last night crews were also called to a derelict building blaze believed to have been started deliberately.

Firefighters tackled the flames on the building in Pembury Street, Sittingbourne just after 9.50pm.

Two fire engines were sent to the building and hose reel jets were used to extinguish the flames which were out by 11.20pm.

In the early hours this morning, a small fire also broke out at a warehouse on the Medway city estate in Rochester.

Three fire engines were sent to the scene of the fire which was caused accidentally by a battery in waste material.

Nobody was injured in any of the incidents.
